Activity Overview


Literary conflicts are often taught during ELA units. Building on prior knowledge to achieve mastery level with our students is important. 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 the Storyboard Creator is a great way to reinforce your lesson!

In Hamlet, much of the conflict stems from the information the ghost gives Hamlet, which ultimately leads to his death. In each act, Hamlet's need for revenge causes misfortune and death.

Having students create storyboards that show the cause and effect of different types of conflicts reinforce and develop literary analysis strengths.

Examples of Literary Conflict in Hamlet

MAN vs. MAN: Laertes vs. Hamlet

The men argue, and eventually fight over the deaths of Polonius and Ophelia.


MAN vs. SOCIETY: Hamlet vs. Court

Hamlet struggles with the Danish court. Convention has placed Claudius on his brother's throne, and allowed him to marry Gertrude, both of which upset Hamlet.


MAN vs. SELF: Hamlet vs. Himself

“To be or not to be, that is the question!”
