Description

In this lesson, from ReadWriteThink, students identify the characteristics of conflict using picture books. They complete graphic organizers while analyzing plot conflict in literature and looking for examples of conflict in their personal experience. Students then write a compare and contrast essay that focuses on two conflicts--one from their own experience and one from a picture book or story that they have read. This lesson incorporates a variety of interactive student activities. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested. Less
