Let’s Talk About Conflict
Secondary School, Years 8—10
Rawah Arja, author of The F Team, explores the nature of conflict in her writing and uses themes of cultural difference and masculinity as a lens through which to test her characters.
She reveals the inspiration behind her novel, discusses the craft of writing conflict, and shares how she creates engaging and nuanced stories that speak to the power of leadership, teamwork, and bridging differences.
This resource was created to accompany the MWF Schools’ Program. It is theme-based, and teachers/students do not need to have read the author’s book, The F Team, to engage with it. The prompts and questions are deliberately general in nature so that it may be used in classrooms across year levels and cohorts.
