Activity Overview


Literary conflict is 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. In this activity, students will choose a type of literary conflict and illustrate examples from the text.

In the example storyboard above, 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. To scaffold or tailor this activity, teachers might ask students to identify multiple examples of one type of conflict, or one example for each type. They may also provide guidance on which types of conflict are present in the story. Be sure to update student instructions as necessary!

Some Examples of Conflict in Literature

  • PERSON vs. PERSON
  • PERSON vs. SELF
  • PERSON vs. SOCIETY
  • PERSON vs. NATURE
  • PERSON vs. TECHNOLOGY
