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 Othello, conflict is ever present. Much of it arises from the machinations of Iago, which ultimately cause Othello's downfall. In each act, Iago's need for revenge causes the other characters misfortune and death.


Examples of Literary Conflict from Othello

MAN vs. MAN

Iago tries to kill Cassio, motivated by anger over a promotion which Cassio received instead of Iago.


MAN vs. SELF

Othello questions Desdemona's devotion, and eventually loses his battle to keep this jealousy in check.


MAN vs. SOCIETY

Othello is a Moor. The prejudice and racism of his society makes others suspicious of him. They do not understand how he is a general, and how he won the love of Desdemona.
