Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am working with my 6ths on conflicts (types/kinds) and I am trying to brainstorm conflict situations that they would be familair with (from fairy tales, picture books, or popular stories).

Man vs. Man

Man vs. Circumstances

Man vs. Society

Man vs. Him/herself


Any ideas or help is appreciated!

Conflicts

Spiderman is good for these, I think. I used the movie (the 2nd one, I think - the one with Dr. Octopus) to introduce the concept of hero, because Spiderman is not invincible but in fact is conflicted about his own role. It was actually very successful in developing critical literacy.
Man vs himself (conflict about whether to keep his superpowers)
Man vs Man (the obvious vs Dr Octopus, vs Mary Jane - should he tell her who he is?)
Man vs circumstances (the accidental spider bite - should he use those powers for good or evil?)
Man vs society (can't think of one just now, but probably could find one)

Good luck
