  1. Lord of the Flies • By William Golding

  2. Are people inherently good or evil? Or crazy? Writing Prompt

  3. Scavenger Hunt • Find the following information on the Internet: • Find out who William Golding is: • Where is he from? • What other works did he write? • When did he write Lord of the Flies? • What themes are common in his works?

  4. Scavenger Hunt • Find out who the characters are. • Give a description of their personalities. • Find out their physical characteristic (either from photos from the movies or written traits.) • Are there any differences between the photographs and the written descriptions?

  5. Scavenger Hunt • Tour the Island: • Based on information from the computer, draw your own map of the island. • Include geographical locations. • Include locations that are important to the plot.

  7. Dewey’s Notes • For the novel Lord of the Flies, you will be creating notes similar to Cliff’s Notes. • For each reading assignment, you will do the following:

  8. Dewey’s Notes • Pick five words from the novel and define them. Include all definitions you find. • List three examples of figures of speech from the text (metaphor, simile, or motif.) Explain them. • Summarize what happens in this part of the novel. • Connect this portion to the greater part of the novel or world. (“Why did Golding write this?”)

  9. Dewey’s Notes • Pick one word from the text that you feel summarizes this portion of the text. Explain your choice. • Extra Credit: Find any incorrect or misleading information in either the web sites or Cliff’s Notes.

  10. Connection to the World • In groups of four, you will develop an oral presentation that extends Lord of the Flies to the world around us. • Possible topics are:

  11. Connection to the World • Compare the characters to S. Freud’s theory on Id, Ego, and Superego. • Explain the issues behind WWII. • Compare the concept of good and evil in various religions and philosophies. • Analyze the “stranded on a deserted island” motif in other works of literature.
