Lord of the Flies learners will enjoy this Google Drive pre-reading activity that gets thinking about and discussing (and maybe even engaging in some friendly arguing!). Then after the novel is done, learners will revisit these questions to consider how their minds have stayed the same or changed based on the events, characters, and themes they've just read about and felt.
SUGGESTED ACTIVITY IMPLEMENTATION
Students are challenged with nine controversial statements that are created to divide the students into two sides. We like to go question by question and have students physically separate to different sides of the classroom. "If you agree, come to this side ... If you disagree, come to this side. Try not to be a maybe or I don't know." Then we have students on both sides express their opinions, while the teacher offers challenging-yet-respectful questions back to each speaker. As students move through the statements, they'll be activating prior knowledge about the deeper issues in the story, while practicing their polite argument skills and getting emotionally connected to the story's ideas.
