Plot Conflict - Character vs Society - Ferdinand the Bull


The essence of fiction. 
It creates plot. 

The conflicts we encounter can usually be identified as one of four kinds: 
Character vs Character, Character vs Nature, Character vs Society, or Character vs Self.

Character vs Society
In writing time today we read the story Ferdinand the Bull.
It is an example of Character vs Society conflict.

Character vs. society -- 
This is a conflict where a character does not conform or follow a society's/cultures rules. 

Definition of 'society' -
*any organised group of people joined together because of work, interest, etc. in common.
*a group of persons regarded as forming a single community.

Here is the story as a YouTube video.

We identified the problem/conflict  
(between character and society) in this story.

'The conflict happened because the bull fighting society thinks that bulls are fierce and expected him to fight, but Ferdinand is kindhearted.'  - Chloe

Then we demonstrated our knowledge of these by showing them on a story map.
