Examining Conflict through Fiction

The sixth grade is learning more about the motivations of different characters and examining their traits and strengths. 

Through peer interviews, they are answering questions including: 

  • How would you describe the protagonist? 
  • How did the protagonist react to conflict, and why did they react this way?
  • How did the protagonist change? 

For this unit, students picked a book of their choice, and as they interviewed each other, they learned about different characters and books to enjoy in the future.
