Freshmen: Exploring Theme in Lord of the Flies

Students will continue their reading of Lord of the Flies, with Chapters 5-7 due on Thursday. We will continue our close reading of the text in addition to reading about a real life survival story from 1972 and viewing a TED talk about the role of “tribes” in contemporary culture.

Students submitted their first multigenre component on Friday of last week and will submit their second piece on Thursday. Their goal is to explore an essential question relevant to our class text in the context of their own lives.

Parents, how can you help?

  • Check in with your child about their quarter four grade. We’re getting close to the end of the quarter: students need to maintain their work ethic with our reading and project work!
