In the final installment of the wildly popular Twilight Saga, the Cullens are fighting to protect their newest family member, Edward and Bella's daughter, Renesme. They find themselves needing to reach out to their allies as well as those who had previously sought to destroy them.
In this video writing prompt, we ask students to reflect on how they have worked cooperatively with others they didn't know very well in order to resolve conflict. There are also some activities for grades K-5 to give them an opportunity to use their imaginations.
6-8 Working Together
Think of a time you had to work with someone you didn’t know very well or felt you didn’t have a lot in common with. How did you break through that initial barrier? What did you learn about the other person? Did you remain friendly after the assignment was over?
9-12 Conflict resolution
In the Twilight Saga, the Cullens have to face the “leaders” of the vampires, the Volturi. Talk about one conflict you’ve had and how you dealt with it. How have you used that experience to deal with other conflicts as they’ve arisen? If you had to face that issue again, would you handle it the same or differently?
