Common Core Standard: RL 9-10.1
This lesson includes two close readings from chapter eight in Lord of the Flies.
The first portion of text is intended to be analyzed for language development and word choice.
The second passage is intended to close read Simon in his sanctuary. After we do this, we watch the first eight minutes from Passion of the Christ. Lastly, we discuss how Simon is used as a Christ figure throughout the novel and why Golding wrote him in this way?
