Activity Overview


Literary conflicts are a major element often taught during ELA units. Storyboarding is an excellent way to focus on types of literary conflict.

Using a traditional three-cell storyboard with titles and descriptions, students can identify three different types of conflict that are described in the text. Then they can visually represent an example of each conflict, along with an explanation of the scene, and how it fits the particular category of conflict. Students can label each type in the title cell and describe how it is shown in the description cell.

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.
