Activity Overview


Storyboarding is an excellent way to focus on types of literary conflicts.

Having students create storyboards that show the cause and effect of different types of conflicts strengthens analytical thinking about literary concepts. 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 Julie of the Wolves

CHARACTER vs. MAN

Miyax’s conflict with Daniel is the spark that sets the story in motion. When Daniel threatens her, Miyax feels terrified and unsafe. This leads her to run away, ultimately getting lost in the wilderness.


CHARACTER vs. NATURE

Miyax is in conflict with nature when she finds herself starving in the tundra. After the lemming population dies off, the larger game leaves the area, and Miyax cannot find anything to eat. Her conflict with nature puts her in danger of death.


CHARACTER vs. TECHNOLOGY

Guns create a conflict for Miyax when hunters come to the tundra. They shoot at her pack of wolves, killing Amaroq and wounding Kapu. The guns bring fear and sorrow into Miyax’s happy life on the tundra.


CHARACTER vs. SOCIETY

As an Eskimo, Miyax struggles to find a place in the modern world. She loves living off the land and is uncomfortable with returning to civilization. All the cities, schools, neat little houses, and modern technology make her uncomfortable. By the end of the book, “civilization [becomes a] monster” to Miyax.
