Conflict in Literature

Anchor Charts

Conflict Anchor Chart

Anchor charts are great tools for student learning. Some support learning by stating rules and examples. Others engage with students by having them become active participates. This anchor chart engages students by having them add the examples .

Have students interact with this anchor chart by using sticky notes. Sticky notes are a great addition to anchor charts. They turn a static page into an interactive lesson. The best thing about using sticky notes is they can be remove, and the anchor chart can be used again with a new group of students.

Activities with this Anchor Chart

   One way is to take one book. Have students write examples of  conflicts in the story.

Examples for Hatchet

Technology: Brian must drive and land the airplane after the pilot dies.

Nature: Brian battles a tornado.

Self: Brian must come to terms with his parents divorce.

Examples using Multiple Books

As you can see from the photo, I listed a number of books my students have read. Students select a sticky note, place it on the chart, and then explain why the book contains this type of conflict. This is a great way to add classroom discussion to the lesson because many books have more than one type of conflict taking place.
