Purpose
Learn to create, develop, and resolve rich narrative conflicts.
Description
Conflict is one of the main structural elements of narrative. In this lesson we explore the difference between confrontation and conflict, read and write examples of various sources of conflict (including relationships, environment, and internal struggle), and we examine how the resolution of conflict often marks the end of a story. For a checkpoint piece, students select their favourite 3-5 variations from the lesson. This is a longer lesson, with 10 pieces of writing. It suits older middle-years and young adult students, and takes 3-4 hours to complete.
