Activity Overview


Storyboarding is an excellent way to focus on types of literary conflict. Have your students choose an example of each literary conflict and depict them using the Storyboard Creator. In the storyboard, an example of each conflict should be visually represented, along with an explanation of the scene, and how it fits the particular category of conflict.


Examples of Literary Conflict in Inherit the Wind

MAN vs. MAN

Drummond and Brady are facing off against each other in the courtroom throughout the case. Brady basks in the glow of the love the town throws at him because they see him as a champion for their traditional beliefs. Drummond puts Brady on the stand and makes him look ridiculous.


MAN vs. SELF

Bert wonders if going through with this case is such a good idea. The entire town is treating him like he killed someone. Rachel is desperately trying to get Bert to back down, and he considers it until Drummond asks him if he honestly believes he committed a criminal act in sharing the idea of the theory of evolution with his students. He still remains hesitant, but decides to go through with the case anyway.


MAN vs. SOCIETY

Bert is going against the law, the Butler Act, which forbade the teaching of the theory of evolution. He is standing up against his entire town, who views him as spreading evil ideas to their children. He is forfeiting his job, his home, and his reputation in the small town of Hillsboro in order to stand up against a law he feels is unjust, and to fight for the right to spread ideas.
