Lord of the Flies 88-page teaching guide including student coursework, activities, quizzes, tests, and much more aligned with the Common Core ELA State Standards in Literature and the NCTE/IRA National ELA Standards for 9th through 11th grade.

SPECIAL NOTE for DISTANCE LEARNING : I have marked this product as appropriate for Distance Learning as this guide is an entire "ready-to-use," complete unit of study for Lord of the Flies. This guide has everything from pre-reading activities to post-reading assessment tools, and everything in-between.

Our products are designed to require as much or as little teacher instruction or intervention as you desire. Lessons and activities are clear, and provide students with full explanation on how to complete activities (giving examples and providing mini-lessons whenever possible), requiring little to no explanation or detailed instruction from the teacher. In many cases, students will be able to self-direct their study and completion of work according to your requirements. Additionally, I have unlocked the PDF so that those who need to use parts of this Guide in Google Classroom can modify it for their needs.

PLEASE NOTE: This material is still copyright protected, and it is a violation to sell or post these materials in any publicly accessible site. You may, however post what you need for your students on a secure school site or similar, where the general public cannot access these materials. THANK YOU!

This Lord of the Flies Literature Guide has the rigor you are looking for, while helping your students enjoy the story itself! Your students will walk away with a love, enjoyment and understanding of the literature and a grasp of the skills required for state and national testing.

Since 2005, Simply Novel (formerly Secondary Solutions) has been creating highly-acclaimed, superior-quality resources for middle and high school ELA. As one of the top secondary sellers on TpT since 2006, you can be assured that our products truly deliver!

Here's what Leslie F. said about this Lord of the Flies unit: I was able to use this bundle with my transition aged students who never read Lord of the Flies because their previous teachers didn't feel like it was a novel they would be able to understand due to its complexity. This resource was invaluable for helping me guide them through this challenging text. It was so worth it in the end; the students really enjoyed the book and now I feel great having exposed them to this classic!
