I love watching John Green's Crash Course videos with my students. I especially like watching his video on Lord of the Flies after we read it. It helps the students begin to understand the symbolism and themes present in the novel before we dive into deep analysis; we write literary analysis essays the same quarter as we read this novel!
This guide helps them follow along, and it launches our class into a good discussion about the video, the novel, the historical context, and the themes. I also love to use this video to lead into our mind map activity because it gets the ball rolling on important elements of the story, such as characters, settings, symbolism, etc...
