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!

Conflict is a major recurring element in The Pearl. Much of the conflict stems from the manifestation of greed centered around the pearl.

Examples of Literary Conflict in The Pearl

MAN vs. SELF

When Kino and his family lose their home, they go to Juan Tomas to see if he will hide them. Juan Tomas is worried about the escalating problems that the pearl has brought and thus is briefly indecisive about helping Kino and Juana.


MAN vs. SOCIETY

The fact that the doctor refuses to help Coyotito because his parents are poor is an example of Man vs. Society. The doctor's ignorance to help them because of their social class is a societal issue.


MAN vs. MAN

Juana sees the pearl as evil and a threat. She tries to sneak away with the pearl and throw it back into the ocean; however, Kino catches her and beats her to get the pearl back.
