Thursday- Work Block!!

Sorry I am not there today. Here is what I would like you to do:

  1. Do the test for Lord of the Flies.
  2. Finish Co-op assignment (it is due on Monday) 
  3. Work on the research for your persuasive essay. Remember, use the note taking document to find one more fictional source that supports your position, two non-fiction that supports your opinion, and one source that goes against your position. This will be due Tuesday, October 30th.

Monday- Quick Write + Chapter 6 review + chapter 7

  1. Quick write- What makes  a good leader?
  2. Misplaced Modifier quiz last 5 minutes of class
  3. Be sure your logophile is done correctly and in One Note so I can see it.
  4. Review chapter 6 and imagery of fear.
  5. Read chapter 7 if time.
  6. Reminder- test on Thursday for chapter 1-7. It will have questions on characterization, plot and symbols as well as questioning, imagery and quotes.

Wednesday- Review chapter 4 and your two questions

  1. Review chapter 4 (see questions posted on yesterdays blog)
  2. Your questions! Put in One Note. Be sure to answer with a “maybe….”. The questions are so deep, there is no exact answer!
  3. Research into your essential question. Here is the note sheet: Notes for Inquiry Project-. 
  4. You will be using 1-2 of these sources in your final persuasive essay so make them relevant. Here is one for you to consider: Brain Games.

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.
