Lord of the Flies gives students so much material with which to work. There are questions to answer for Chapters 1 through 8. Then for Chapters 9 through 12, students, in small groups, brainstorm one question per person per chapter to ask the class. There is also a character chart where the students choose 2-3 character traits for each character, then support it with evidence from the novel and explore symbols for each character. Also included is a short assignment on Allegory. In this assignment, students discover three different aspects of allegory; social, religious and moral which Golding exemplifies in the novel. This new found knowledge is then applied to an Allegory and Symbolism Presentation Activity where students work in small groups to connect their chosen symbol to allegorical references in the novel and to further connect to the main idea of the story. There is also a Rubric enclosed to give students the learning expectations of the assignment.
