Open Your Popplet! We will be adding characters as we move along!
List some of the things you believe Chapter 3 foreshadows for the future of the novel…
Open the “Conflict in Of Mice and Men” document in iTeach. Take notes on the first two questions, then you will complete the bottom half.
Conflict – a literary element that involves a struggle between two opposing forces (usually a protagonist and an antagonist.)protagonistantagonist External Conflict – a situation where a character finds himself in struggle with outside forces. Internal Conflict - arises as soon as a character experiences two opposite emotions or desires; usually virtue or vice, or good and evil inside him.
Man versus Man – Characters are pitted against one another. Man versus Society – Characters struggle to overcome a common belief/viewpoint held by society at large. Man versus Nature – The hero must overcome a force of nature (ex. The weather, animals, the sea, jungle, mountains, etc.) to reach his goal. Man versus Himself – Protagonist must overcome his own nature (ex. Fears, character flaws, etc.) to reach his goal. *Can you give me an example of each type of conflict from some movie or book?
Answer Questions 3 & 4. Take 5-10 minutes to complete these tasks in silence! You may listen to music if it helps you concentrate and remain quiet.
Man versus Man Man versus Society Man versus Nature Man versus Himself
Rising Action is made up of events in a novel that heighten the conflict towards the climax. What moments from the first three chapters of the novel actually heighten the conflict? It is your group’s job to figure out the answer to this question!
In your assigned group, you will perform 3-5 tableaux of scenes/events that you believe qualify as rising action in the novel this far. A tableau is a frozen pantomime. Group members will freeze in a position that recreates a specific moment of the novel, then someone in the group will take a picture of the tableau on their iPad. Assemble the tableaux into a Keynote presentation, giving titles for each picture. Email the Keynote to me as a pdf when you are finished!
