This is a fully editable close reading activity for students studying William Golding's Lord of the Flies. This activity contains the teacher directions, the passage from the text, and the student handout with all of the directions for the students as well. This lesson will help the students master CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.1, citing strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. This activity has directions for the students to annotate the passage, questions to direct their attention and annotations to specific aspects of the text as well as a writing assignment. The writing assignment can be used as a whole response, or you can have your students simply plan for a response to the essay prompt.
