Activity Overview


Literary conflicts are often taught during ELA units. An excellent way to focus on the various types of literary conflict is through storyboarding. Having students choose an example of each Literary conflict and depict it using storyboards is a great way to reinforce your lesson.

Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl is rife with conflict. There are many interpersonal conflicts between the characters, as well as larger societal conflicts. The Franks are driven into hiding because of the anti-Jewish policies of the Nazi regime, and on a smaller scale, Anne gets annoyed and hurt by the adults who criticize her.

Have students choose one, or a few, of the conflicts in Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. Using a T-Chart or a traditional storyboard, students can identify various examples of conflicts and depict them with explanations. In the prototype example below, each cell contains a particular type of conflict. The type of conflict is displayed, and visually represented with an explanation of the scene, and how it fits the specific category of conflict.

Examples of Literary Conflict in Anne Frank

MAN vs. MAN

Mrs. Van Daan and Mr. Van Daan regularly get into arguments, sometimes over very trivial matters. The limited space in the Secret Annexe means the rest of the occupants are also affected.


MAN vs. SELF

Anne struggles with the isolation and boredom of the seclusion in the Secret Annexe and with fear of being caught. She writes letters to her friend, "Kitty", that are really diary entries.


MAN vs. SOCIETY

Leading up to and during World War II, Nazi Germany persecuted and eventually imprisoned Jews in concentration camps. Millions of Jews died there.
