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 from The Moon is Down

MAN vs. MAN

Colonel Lanser wants Mayor Orden’s cooperation so that the occupation will go smoothly; however, Mayor Orden knows that his people would not want that and so he refuses. He also refuses to condemn Alex Morden for murdering Captain Bentick, since no crime was committed against the townspeople.


MAN vs. SELF

Molly hates the occupiers because they murdered her husband; however, when Lieutenant Tonder comes to visit her, she falters for a second because she is confused and lonely. She also recognizes the humanity in Tonder, and knows that in different circumstances, maybe she could like him and connect with him. In the end though, she murders him.


MAN vs. SOCIETY

George Corell’s treachery goes against the very basic ideals of freedom that the townspeople ascribe to. His plan to rid the town of all defenses, leaving it vulnerable to the occupiers and then his collaboration with them leads Mayor Orden to decide it is best to get rid of him; it is best for the people to no longer see him in the streets. The Anders boys try to kidnap him and kill him, but fail; Corell survives, and is granted more authority by the leadership in the Capital.
