Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Conflict Skits Day 1 - Section 1: Anticipatory Set


I think it is integral that students develop a broad understanding of conflict in order to recognize it in its more specific forms when they are reading, watching television, etc. If students are only looking for a fight or a disagreement, they will miss many conflicts that are necessary to the text they come from. Students have come to me with such a limited or overly generalized perspective of conflict in literature, so I take a little extra time to catch them up in preparation for higher level reading and analysis.
