Conflict Resolution Worksheet
Introduce the kids to the basic patterns of conflict.
- Person against person. Tension comes between the protagonist and antagonist.
- Person against society. Tension comes between the character and a societal factor like poverty.
- Person against nature. This comes from a characters battle against nature (hurricanes, weather, etc.).
- Person against self. The protagonist faces inner conflict.
This story has at least two patterns of conflict. There are many mini conflicts in the story that are resolved. Remember that resolution does not necessarily mean a happy ending. Sometimes resolutions are not so positive. As you reach each new conflict in the story write it down. As each conflict is resolved, write that down too. Be sure to include page numbers so you can go back and analyze.
Have the kids turn in their Conflict & Resolution Worksheet to check for understanding. Grade on content.
