Story Conflict

Catching Readers Before They Fall
I found a great post by Pat Johnson and Katie Keir that discusses four types of story conflicts. The blog,  Catching Readers Before They Fall has a list of picture books that can be used for the four areas listed below.
Person vs. Person
Person vs. Self
Person vs. Nature
Person vs. Society
While you may not have to teach this standard, I believe the list is a good one and worth a look!
You can preview the entire book, Catching Reader's Before They Fall for free at Stenhouse.  I already have and found it to be worth adding to my list of books to order soon!

I found this post from my Choice Literacy Newsletter.  Every teacher should subscribe!  There are plenty of good free articles, even if you can't afford to join as a member.


  1. Thanks for sharing the book. I hadn't seen it before. I love the Choice Literacy Newsletter.

    I DO have to teach this standard, so I appreciate the recommendation!
    Thanks so much!
