In one of my seventh grade classes we're discussing different types of conflicts. We began our current short story unit with the story, "All Summer in a Day," by Ray Bradbury. To help them visualize conflicts, I wrote examples beneath the "umbrellas" - Internal and External. Then they can read examples of Man V. Self, Man V. Man, Man V. Nature, and Man V. Society from the story. We'll refer to this as we continue the unit.
Conflicts are all around us and the way we approach them, truly defines who we are as a person. In this picture a situation is present and there are different ways to approach it and once we can determine our way of approaching a conflict, we can find a better way to solve that problem or conflict and this will then help us grow into a better person.
