What dangers do you see as a person stranded on this deserted island. Be specific and explain your answers?
I would see a lot of dangers like getting hurt or sick. Also people could get bit by a insect or a animal. But my job was finding water when people could be going out and people could get lost and be out in the middle of no where for a very long time the person could also go and reach down to get some water and get bitten by a snake in the water. So if i was stranded on a island that's what i would see my life doing.

Piggy - fat (25) doesn't say piggy's age, confident (Piggy gets told no a lot)(25).
Jack - is found on page (23) Jack is really bossy of the group.
Simon - found on page (22) dose not talk about him a lot (But Simon is always about doing things to help out).

Type the rules we created as a classroom from the board. This is something we will return to. In the meantime, pick the rule you find most important (from the ones we created) and explain why that rule, above all others is most important on this island.
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
The rule that i pick is don't go out at night. this rule is very important because if a person do this they could get really hurt u could get sick or bit by something and the person could get lost and not find your way back and then the others will have to risk there lives to come and find the person who got lost so that's why this rule is so important for the group on the island.
One of the themes of this novel is survival. Explain why the setting of this story adds to or contributes to the theme.
The theme for this novel " Lord of the flies" by William Golding. The theme is not to over power other people and not to close out other people that have something to say because it could be important and whoever is in charge dose not realize it and when the person in charge don't listen it could get someone else in the group could get hurt from their mistake.
One example of foreshadowing is that when he Ralph said the lagoon is warmer than blood that foreshadows the war that is going on in this time this because they got shot down by a plane.
Ralph has said, “This is a good island” (Golding 35). Ralph’s pronouncement will prove ironic; it is definitely NOT a good island. What problems do readers already know about? Explain why these problems prove this is NOT a good island after all. This island isn't good because there is so many problems for example the woods caught on fire and the little boy died which is really sad and the vines someone could get stuck under them or get lost in the wood or wonder off like Simon did and now hes in a a rock type cave in the middle of nowhere and thees also a problem with hunting and getting pigs to so there is a lot of many different problems on this so call good island
Symbols are physical things that represent abstract ideas. The following are some of the symbols from the novel The Lord of the Flies.
Meat symbolizes the temptation the boys face on the island.
the platform= civilization because it helps everyone come together and speak their mind
Conch = the law and order the conch helps keep everyone in order and how they talk.
piggy = democracy because it power like piggy disagrees with everyone
simon = goodness because he wants everyone to work together and be the same.
smoke= rescue because its the only thing that can only help them be rescued from the island.
the island= isolation because all of the kids are in the middle of nowhere.
piggy's glases = survival because if it wasn't for them the wouldn't be able to build the fire.
painted forces = anonymity because the hunter want to be anonymous
Describe the Beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your info.
The beast is animal or a ghost that the little ones claim that they have seen but they say it has claws and that it comes out at night and also that the beast is dark like a shadow and has big teeth but Ralph has went all over the island and they haven't seen it so Ralph thinks it is just a nightmare that the kids are having but overall i think that there is no beast.
Name at least two things the boys are doing or have given up that show how they are now operating on instinct and no longer trying to follow the rules of society. Explain your answers with information from the text.
One thing that has been given up is their manners because all they do is fight because Piggy yelled at Jack and he got embarrassed in front of everyone and everyone has started to loose thier mental state everyone has started to fight and they are crying scared and overall they all going crazy it looks like. The character Roger has given up on hope that they will be rescued and now he is lazy and wont follow the rules just like how Ralph said lets go and Roger said We have plenty of time and then Ralph said all u do is wast time so yeah everyone is giving up.
Two rituals people are most familiar with are weddings and funerals. Pick an event (a wedding or 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 phrase is helpful in the situation.
My event is a wedding and the 3 phrases i pick are 1. I do 2.do u take this boy to be your lovely husband until death 3. You may kiss the bride. Then one that i think is the most important is you may kiss the bride. The reason this is the most important is because the kiss means that your married finally so u can live happily forever. But this one is a helpful statement for everyone it means a lot to the people get married.
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.
I choose Jack because when they were going up the mountain to see the bests Ralph was kinda scared because to me Ralph resembles Piggy in a way. Jack thinks he is cool now because he went up the mountain before Ralph but he did go u too and Jacks says that he didn't and then Jack and Ralph were fighting over being chief. Honestly you can tell that Jack is jealous of Ralph this can be found on page 127. Jack just wants to overpower Ralph in so many ways Jack wants to do things his way instead of Ralph's way. That's why there are so many fights because of this even piggy wants things to go a certain way. Jack on the other hands wants everything like today he tried to bribe Ralph and the others to come to the feast he also tried to get people to live with his group this can be found on page 140. So the bests has scared everyone one but also has split everyone up.
Retell in your own words what has happened to Simon. Use textual evidence to help you create a vivid paragraph.
Simon was on top of the mountain and he doesn't know that the group has split up in two groups so he is starting down the mountain. Ralph and piggy are with jack and his group getting food. After that the storms rains down and jack assembles a circle in the group and he says. (Dour dance! Come on! Dance:found on page 151). The whole group is now doing this and Simon is almost there now. The group is chanting out (Kill the beast! Cut his throat! Spill his blood found on page 152). when Simon arvies a little one says "him". And that how the attack on simon and kill him that night.
Using this quote, take a stand. Pick a side and explain why your 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 would pick Jacks group because Jack gets stuff done. Jack also gets more meat and that group is more dangerous they know how to protect each other. But Ralph has to fight with the little people that he has and Jack has a whole tribe that can fight for him. Jack says that is part of the island is more fun. I think it is because Jack and his group can roll rocks off the rock bilding type thing into the water and i wluld love to do that would be really fun. That's why i would join Jacks group instead of Ralph's group.
In life people create groups. These groups might be at school, in sports, in extracurricular activities, and through religious organizations. Explain what needs groups fill for people. Explain both the positive and negative aspects of being part of a group. You may relate this to our novel, or you may make it a person reflection of your own experience.
The positive sides of having a group is for. Friends, team mats that could support you in to do what u are doing and if your felling sad u could be in a group to help u stop being sad and to make you happy. The negative side to having a group is that. When they get you in trouble and u leave that group the group get mad at you and beats you up. Also if the group is doing something bad and you as a person don't want to do it and te group could force you to it or like in the book where the group splits up and now the have to work harder because there is less people.
“Which is better - to have rules and agree, or to hunt and kill?”
I think hunt and kill is better because it proves a point better then Ralph way on the island that's why he never got anything done is because he was to nice see Jack will punish you and tie up like how Jack the people in his group to do that to Sam and Eric (found on page 179 Jack said "tie them up"). So now piggy is dead and it scared Ralph and Jack and his tribe force Sam and Eric to join his tribe and that means that Ralph has no one to join him so now hes alone and scared. Jack has proven his piont to Ralph. But Sam is on Ralph's side is just scared to leave. Sam told Ralph that they are going to hunt Ralph.
Today’s assignment requires you to think about the book as a whole. Your directions are to choose a picture and a quote from the book and add it to your blog.
"what can he do more than he already has"page (171). This whole book was over all dangerous Because piggy dies so dose Roger jacked killed them. The island has turned everyone against Ralph and now hes alone and Jack has went crazy because of the tribe he made and now this island has went to darkness and violent. Jack doesn't know what hes is doing now but he dose get more stuff done then Ralph did but in a more dangerous way. Jack is jealous of Ralph because Ralph is chief and Jack wants that position. The same day that this happend later that night Ralph climb up the Rock to talk to Sam and Eric. Then Sam said that Jack and the Tribe was going to hunt for Ralph. Then Sam told Ralph about that two sided stick. So that proves what Jack is capable of and how dangerous he can be.
