This study guide for Lord of the Flies avoids the problems of conventional study guides. It does not provide open-ended questions that ask the student to "read the mind" of the teacher. Rather, it asks students to fill in blanks in simple sentences as they read. This does not create any advanced understanding of the novel. Instead, it helps students focus while they read. This prepares them for more detailed discussion in class. And, as an added benefit, a completed study guide provides excellent notes on each chapter of the novel. Check the preview for a full discussion of the assignment as well as a sample page.
