What dangers do you see as a person stranded on this deserted island. Be specific and explain your answers.
~ I see dangerous animals, heat, cold, and dehydration. The dangerous animals could be because they could attack you. The heat because there are so many high cliffs that its hard to get water and you have to walk so far to get the water but before you get there you could dehydrate and you couldn't jump into the water because there could be sharks or dangerous water snakes. Or how about the fact that you could end up living there without ever being found and running out of your food source. There could be people who were there before you crashed and they need the sources for their selves so they set out to kill you and the others. But worst of all you could be stranded on that island by your self and have no way back knowing that you will most likely die alone scared and not able to see your family/the ones you love anymore. I guess its a good thing that your not alone though because you have people just like you stranded, scared, hungry and willing to fight to help keep you and themselves alive for the same reason you don't want to be alone through this hard time in your life. All you can do is stay and think that positive things will happen and think about how many people miss you and how much they do to help keep you motivated just know everything will work out the way its going to and the only thing you can do is hope for the best and make the best out of the worst situations.
The characters in the book "Lord of the Flies"
Ralph~The elected leader of the boys and the main protagonist. He is neither the smartest nor the strongest but has a kind of quiet charisma and good looks. He tries to keep the boys focused on domestic order and the rules of civilization but loses his authority and almost his life to Jack's seizure of power.
Piggy~Subject of the group's ridicule for his weight, asthma, and general lack of physical prowess or stamina. He provides the brains of the group, as well as the spectacles necessary to start the fire. Loyal to Ralph and all he represents, Piggy's death leaves Ralph alone, pitted in social isolation against Jack's tribe.
Johnny Merridew~One of the smaller littluns who has a mean streak nonetheless.
Samneric (Sam and Eric)~The twin boys who are in charge of keeping the signal fire going. Until they are captured by the tribe, they remain loyal to Ralph. They speak as one, often finishing each other's sentences, so that the other boys pronounce their two names as one word.
Jack~The leader of the choir/hunters. Already militant as a choir leader, Jack leads his group of choirboys-turned-hunters in mutiny against Ralph's leadership by playing on the boys' baser instincts. Jack favors hunting and its savage reward of meat over the civilized domesticity and hope for rescue that Ralph tries to maintain.
Simon~The visionary of the group. Given to fainting spells and spending time alone in the jungle, he is considered odd by the other boys. Only Simon understands the true nature of the beast they fear, and only Simon has the courage to investigate the eerie creature sighted on the mountain. Before he can reveal what he has learned, he is killed in a tribal ritual gone too far.
Littluns~The littlest boys, around ages six and up. They remain with Ralph during the mutiny.
Maurice~A bigun who becomes one of Jack's key supporters, accompanying him on the raids on Ralph's camp.
Henry~The biggest of the littluns. He is made the object of a mean-spirited prank by Roger.
Percival Wemys Madison~A littlun who has a nervous breakdown and is often picked on by the other littluns. He introduces the idea that the beast might arrive from the sea.
Robert~A bigun who plays the role of the pig in one of the tribal dances that reenact a hunt. He is hurt when the dance turns into a fierce beating.
Roger~A sly, secretive boy who displays, early on, a cruelty toward the weak and vulnerable. Once joining Jack's tribe, he becomes the hangman, causing Piggy's death, torturing Samneric (Sam and Eric) until they join the tribe, and preparing a stick on which to mount Ralph's head.
The first rule established is about the conch shell. The rule is that whoever holds the shell is the speaker and everyone else should be quiet and listen. The next rule the children set into place is to determine a person in charge and they voe for Ralph. Ralph then goes on to establish different positions such as the hunters. He appoints Jack's group as the hunters and they will provide food. Another rule is that the fire will be kept going.
Our rules we created about the book as a class:
1~Travel in pairs 2~Don't go out at night 3~Share resources 4~Clean up after your self 5~Communicate effectively 6~Do your job 7~ Do not kill the others
I feel like to travel in pairs is the most important rule because if your alone and a dangerous animal comes up to you and you don't know what to do or your one of the littluns then you would be defenseless and scared knowing that you have a 90% chance of dying but if your with someone then they could help remind you or even save your life. You should never let littluns go somewhere without someone older that can fight and animal off or someone that can do good in a crises.
The theme is survival. The setting supports this because the setting is on an island and they are stranded on it so they have to learn how to compromise and share the resources you collect/find to not only survive but also help the others survive so your not alone.Survival is also when you use your resources to help like when the used piggy's glasses to start the fire for a smoke signal.
Irony:Ralph has said, “This is a good island” (Golding 35). Ralph’s pronouncement will prove ironic; it is definitely NOT a good island. This is an example of foreshadowing. What problems do readers already know about? Explain why these problems prove this is NOT a good island after all.
When Ralph said "This is our island. It's a good island. Until the grownups come to fetch us we'll have fun." (Golding page 35) the bold statement is the ironic part because it's not really a good island the reason i know this is because they have only each other and limited resources to use and they have to share everything they find. And their alone on this island with no grown-ups to make rules and tell them what they to do to better them selves until they are rescued and that's only if they get rescued they could be stranded forever but there are 3 things they need to think about and they are to share your resources, don't argue a lot because they waste time and effort that they could be spending trying to keep the fire going trying to find a way off the island or finding/ hunting food for each other, and never give up because when you do you have a less likely percent chance of getting home to see your family.
A. Describe the Beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your info.
The beast that is stalking the island is imaginary to the bigguns but to the littluns it is all so true they are frightened and curious about if there really is a beast what it looks like and if its dangerous or not."What about the beast?" here the littluns are worried "Thats a clever beast," said piggy, jeering, "if it can hide on this island" but here the bigguns are trying to get them to not believe it.
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.
1~ Some of the boys think that they shouldn't use the conch like Jack when he said "Conch! Conch!" shouted Jack "We don't need the conch anymore. We know who ought to say things. What good did Simon do speaking, or Bill, or Walter? It's time some people knew they've got to keep quite and leave deciding things to the rest of us." (Golding 101-102 ). But at that point he had made Ralph and Piggy so mad that Ralph could no longer ignore his speech. The blood was hot in his cheeks. " You haven't got the conch," he said " Sit down." Jack's face went so white that the freckles showed as clear, brown flecks. He licked his lips and remained standing ( Golding 102). 2~ Jack wants everyone to go hunt the beast and kill it but Piggy's worried about the littluns. "Let's be moving," said Jack relentlessly, "we're wasting time." "No we're not. What about the littluns?" "Sucks to the littluns!" "Someone's got to look after them." " Nobody has so far" " There was no need! Now there is. Piggy'll look after them." " That's right. Keep piggy out of danger." " Have some sense. What can Piggy with only one eye." (Golding 101).
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.
Funeral-Three phrases people say at funerals are....
1~They are in a better place...
2~There is a reason for everything...
3~ I'm sorry for your loss...
I'm sorry for your loss because its all about them and it makes/ helps them know you care not only about them but about the death of their relative or their friend and its just something people feel like your not just saying it your meaning it to because if you didn't mean it why would you be there helping support them in this/ that tough time.
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~ When Jack seen the Beast the effect that it had an him was when they seen it Jack to charge and wasn't thinking about how he could get out safely but how they both could "Let's creep forward on our hands and knees. Maybe it's asleep." they was scared at first but then Jack realized that it was a human and wasn't that scared anymore while Ralph felt as though he was going to puke "Scared?" asked Jack.
Retell in your own words what has happened to Simon. Use textual evidence to help you create a vivid paragraph.
When they didn't know they was beating Simon to death they thought that it was the beast. Simon was
