Gilligans Island! By: Jennifer AValos

What dangers do you see as a person stranded on this deserted island. Be specific and explain your answers.

What i think the dangers are on living on the island is how food is limited and it doesn't have many shelter would be a hard living environment.also the fact that the only thing they have to eat is pigs they might get sick of it after a while so they are getting upset they seem to not have any living space so they have to live outside instead of a shelter. Another thing that is very dangerous is when they have to make a fire they don't have much to stop it so it can become a wild fire like it already did in the novel.

Create a list of characters from the novel and add details about them using textual evidence from the novel you need at least 4 things about each character and all need to have textual evidence ( can add through out the novel)

  • Ralph-12 years old, most charismatic, refer him as "a boxer" is the leader of all of all of them.
  • Jack-Golding, ugly without silliness, blue eyes, leading advocate of anarchy on the islands
  • Simon-cheerful, referred as a "nutshell",
  • Roger-most violent,sadistic from all the boys
  • Maurice-older boy,has issue of "wrong doing" with his tribe
  • Henry-one of the littluns, childish, oldest of the three

Rules : 1.)travel in 2. 2.) don't go out at night 3.) share resources 4.) clean up after yourself 5.) communicate effectively 6.) do your job. 7.) do not kill each other.

Out of all these rules I believe that the most important rule is that they must do there job. The reason I feel that this is the most important one is because if they don't do the job they are told to do everything could go out of wack and like there living environment won't be as good as they would like it to be, another reason that this is good is as they do there job it's getting them closer and closer to getting rescued and that's good since they all want to take pet so they could get off the island. Since some of them don't do there job it gets very frustrating for the other that do there job cause they are not being appreciated for there job as the other kids don't do them.

One of the themes of this novel is survival. Explain why the setting of this story adds to it contributes to the theme

The setting of the story is a good setting because with the island that there on it makes it seem like there situations is a life or death so if they don't work together then it would be very difficult for them to serve and have as many of them be rescued at a time. Also anything thing is since they are stranded on the island it makes it even harder to have food cuz once they run out they are going to have a lot of problems, not many will be able to live but as of right now they only eat pigs which is good but could also start to loose population of them as they stay on the island longer and longer.

Ralph has said, " this is a go island" (golden 35 ). Ralph's pronouncement will prove ironic; it is definitely NOT a good island. Explain why these problems prove this is NOT a good island after all.

The reason this is not a good island is that there is a "beast" on the island and they have limited food and that well they were put on there cause of a war. They don't have very good shelter and well they have all gone crazy now so as much as they want to Believe it's a good island it really isn't it is a pretty bad island to be living on

The Beast

Describe the beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your info. The beast was unknown till the littuluns

Name at least 2 things the boys are doing or has ever given up the show how they are now operating on instinct and no longed trying to follow the rules of society. Explain our answers with information from the Text.

One of the things that there doing is lack of job since there is so much happening they don't have time to deal with the jobs and they are just trying to focus on being safe. Another thing is go out at night they use to make them all go to sleep at night and everyone be out but now they try to have someone up so they can look if there's a beast coming to them and just so it don't attack them over night.

Two rituals people are most families iliar with are weddings and funerals. Pick an event ( a wedding of a funeral ). Make a list of at least 3 phrases people use at the event you picked using one of your phrases, explain why your phrases is helpful in the situation.

In memory of , we are gathered here today , we will miss :( They are going a in memory of because they are making a sacerfice in the ritual that they are doing. Also that ritual is showing that they are not messing around and they are ready to kill if they have to and are willing to do what it takes so they can get what they want.

Choose a character, either Ralph or jack and explain the effect seeing the beast has on the character you have chosen. Use textual information to support your answer

Jack was acting weird once the pig was put on the stick like it was speaking to him, the pig on the stick was telling him what would go on what was coming by the thing is it was only in his head. But the way it was expressed in the novel made it seem and made jack feel that it was all real that when the pig head was saying would've true and would happen." His voice was lower when he spoke again. " but we'll leave part of the kill for ....." 136( golden).

Retell in your own words what has happened to Simon. Use textual evidence to help you create a vivid paragraph.

The way that simon died was the people from the forge tribe were very angry with him , they only wanted meat so since they were not following the rules anymore so theydicided to pretend that he was a pig , and they kicked him and hurt him to death they just wanted him to see that they were not kidding. They wanted to see that they were willing to get food in anyway but also I Believe they just wanted to kill because they were also willing to kill the littleluns. In my opinion they just don't have respect for other Human life.

In life people create groups. These groups might be at school, in sport, in extracurricular activities, and through religious organizations. Explain what needs group fill for people. Explain both the positive and the negative aspects of bein part of the group. You may relate this to are novel or make it a person reflection of your own experience.

I think the reason people makes these groups is so they can feel good in there own ways and also so that when there with other people they feel not belonged and people can make fun of them in there own way and without these groups we would really know who we are as a person we would be lost in are own world but just like everything else these groups have a negative impact because with these groups also come conflict between each other because they would like to be only wth there group and others couldaffend them of just not like that group so they would try to stay away from it as possible. In the novel, they are separated into groups of people that are sick of everything now on this insland and just wanna have fun and not have all these rules and go crazy, then there's the group that wanted everything to be perfect wants it to be how they want and without that then they won't be happy. To be honest they could have had both they were just not thing about it and were being not very mature about it so that's why there groups when into chaos. 

" which is better - to have ruled and agree, or to hunt and kill ?" Using this quote, take a stand. Pick a side and explain why you decision is best on this island here at the end of chapter 11. Don't forget to use textual evidence to support your answer.

I believe it is better to have law and order or to rule and agree cuz without that then they will have chaos in how they live and then many of them would get hurt and they will have more deaths then would be needed. Another reason it's better to have it is with there agrees and with all the laws they have because it helps them get along together and to not well kill each other. :) " the conch exploded into thousands white fragments and ceased to exist. Piggy, saying nothing, with no time for even a grunt"(golden181). This quote is showing how since there conch was broken in to thousands of pieces the law and order then once had has been distroyed.

"This head is for the beast.its a gift "(golden137).

This is a very ironic thing to do because this is when they don't realize that there is no beast the beast is in there head and they just are trying to see what would happen. Ironic means for something to happen that doesn't seem like it would happen but still does. They end up killing Simon thing that he's the beast. When they say that it's a gift they really are just saying that they have killed a pig and how they are not afraid to kill again. That's why it was very simple for them to kill Simon they new it was just in there head after a while and thought that Simon was the beast so beat him to death. Simon slowly knew that he was gonna get killed by them there was a lot of foreshadowing towards it. Jack really knew that all of this was going to happened that he worked towards it in secret and I feel like that's hidden in the novel in between the lines.

Final letter

So this novel was not my favorite, like just what was happening I didn't find very interesting I didn't feel like it suit the day I like to read. Yes I enjoyed listening to you read the book to me if anything that's probably the only reason I would listen to the book because when you read the book it makes it seem more realistic and when it feels more realistic I feel like I'm there and that helps me enjoy the book other that, that book was not as exciting and good to me I didn't have much interest. My opinion on this blog it was good I just feel like I got distracted a lot so I was a little behind on it but if you kept your self on top of it I feel like it was a easy grade that could be given and so it can be understood better in are minds. And in the way it's taught to us. Another thing I would like to add is that way Mrs.lyda teaches is amazing and its help me enjoy reading books more than I have with other teacher , for example if there's a good I don't have much interest for like "Lord of The Flies" she makes it seem interesting and good for me to enjoy it even when I knew I didn't enjoy the book as much as of it was a topic I was really into.
