Class Name Literature 1

This week’s focus: READ The Lord of the Flies by William Golding

In preparation for Schole support class:

In class we discussed the reading schedule. I am revising it. Please read up to chapter 5 for next class. That is more than we discussed, but it tracks book completion before the end of May.

Choose ONE of 1,2,3 or 4 using chapters 1-5

Answer in a paragraph before next class, early May.

1. What character is showing change? How? What actions show they are changing from who they were at the beginning? Give examples from the book.
2. What character shows the best leadership? How do you know? What do they do that demonstrates the best leadership?
3. The island is given personality by William Goulding. How would you explain the “character” of the island. What is it like?
4. Consider the writing style. What literary devices stick out to you the most. What phrases, vocabulary, simile, metaphor, or imagery is powerful in your reading so far?

Continue working on grammar of poetry.
