Product Description
This lesson was developed during our study of the novel Lord of the Flies and was intended to challenge students to consider how an author's society may affect his or her opinions and narrative. Through the lens of the question, "How does an author's society affect his perspective and story?", students are first introduced to the concept of historical context in general, and then instructed about how the Cold War may have affected Golding and, consequently, the ideas and dialogue presented within the story. The lesson includes the Ppt introducing historical context (generally and as it pertains to Golding), and the lesson plan containing an experiential activity designed to introduce students to the struggle between capitalism and communism, as well as a handout that students complete in groups by analyzing the novel for evidence of the studied historical context.
