This is a great, concise, but challenging set of documents for your students reading William Golding's Lord of the Flies.
In it, I've included the following:
-Vocabulary Notebook Requirements and List for Students
Students complete an entry for all the words on the list in their own notebooks/paper or Google Docs/Word and use them to study for the quiz at the end of the book, and to build their understanding of the novel.
-Alternate Vocabulary Requirements Handout
-Vocabulary List for Teacher
Includes definitions and use in the novel
Students must define and use 14 words in their own sentence. Quiz contains a sampling from the master list.
Three separate sheets that contain quotations from the novel under a related topic. Students must provide analysis for each quote, much like in an essay (commentary), and write a conclusion for each set. Answer keys included (suggested usage according to chapters on the keys)!
William Golding wrote an article in 1989 in response to a brutal killing of children by children called, "Why Boys Become Vicious." It is an excellent way to get students talking about some major themes in the novel. My worksheet asks some critical thinking questions about the article. You will have to get the article online, but I also have it listed separately in my store for no cost.
-Exam Study Guide
This is an extensive guide for students that they fill out. It is separated into four categories: Characters, Symbols, Themes, and Conflicts. The better job a student does on this, the easier the test will be for him/her.
This is a brand new, CCSS-approach to a final unit exam that is based on the study guide. It asks students to choose examples from their guide to write about in detail in the categories of Characters, Symbols, Themes, and Conflicts, with an additional section of Quote Significance. This is a challenging, yet thorough test for the novel. No Key.
-Final Project Options
This a handout that offers five creative, yet challenging options for individuals or small groups. Options include music, writing, poetry, among others. Great, fun, and worthwhile activities.
I hope you enjoy this. Thanks!
