Do you need to get your students more engaged with Lord of the Flies? This is a fun project that allows students to become involved with the text, express themselves artistically, and share with their classmates.
Students are asked to imagine that the boys on the island are holding an election for a new leader. They must create a persuasive poster to convince the tribe who would be the best new leader.
The project requires students to support their thoughts with textual evidence, form claims and counter claims, use persuasive writing (and rhetorical devices if desired), and discuss with the class. Students really love this assignment. You can edit the power point to fit your lesson plans and class needs.
Slides include detailed instructions and a grading rubric (printable).
