Tuesday- Misplaced Modifiers and Chapter 4

  1. Do the second part of No Red Ink. If you are confident, try this one: http://www.chompchomp.com/modifiers01/modifiers01.htm
  2. Read the rest of chapter 4. (after I read most of it to you)  Use your stickies to record deep QUESTIONS that can be answered with a MAYBE.  Questions to DISCUSS only:
    1. What is the significance of the title “Painted Faces and Long Hair”?
    2. Why does Roger, throwing stones at the littleun’, aim just to miss?
    3. What is the stand that Ralph makes in front of Jack? How does this cement his leadership? How will this affect Jack and his behaviour?
    4. Piggy wants to create a sundial. What does this say about Piggy’s character? What does he symbolize?
    5. Why does Jack refuse to give Piggy meat? Who does give him meat despite Jack?
    6. What is the symbolic significance of Piggy’s glasses breaking?
  3. On Wednesday- choose TWO of your questions from your stickies. In One Note, under “Class Notes” write the questions and then answer with a “maybe”. Eg. Is the mask symbolic? And if so, what is the symbolism? A. Maybe it symbolizes the barrier between savagery and civilization. When they are wearing the mask, they can act differently, more savage. It gives them permission to be their true selves instead of putting on the mask that society has created for them (civilized British school boys).
  4. Please do a logophile for chapter 4.
