In the next week you will get an updated report with your Power of One blog post/quotation responses, comments on others’ blog posts, citation assignment.

 

We have now started to read Lord of the Flies.  This novel is truly a classic and a standard for English class reading.  There are so many great topics for discussion from this novel – good vs. evil, leadership, mob mentality, symbolism, and the impact experience can have on a writer.  In the handouts section you will see a copy of the unit schedule – which I also gave out in class – the pre-reading questions to consider, as well as the during reading activity.  The during reading research you are being asked to do cannot be a last minute thing.  You can start this right away so that it is ready to hand in when we are done the novel.  You will also be doing a significant writing piece for this novel (yes, I mean essay), so you will be busy before Christmas, plan accordingly.
