Adventures With Yuli follow me through my journey

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

The dangers someone has if they are stranded are having enough resources for themselves. They will have trouble finding food and shelter. They have to compete with other animals for the food and they will have to protect themselves. There would be a lot of problems like you could die from the things you eat or when an animal bites you it could lead to an infection and you wouldn't be able to cure it because you're on an island with no one to call for help. You would have to find shelter because. You wouldn't know how long you are going to stay there it could be months or years it would depend how well known the island is and where the island is or if someone sees the plane crash and they could alert the rescue team. You would compete with other people that were on the plane because of the food and water and shelter that is available and you would compete with animals for all the things you need too. If there were apples you would have to fight with people because they would would be hungry and if there was babies you couldn't really fight because they need food since they are growing. If you caught an animal there would be no way to cook it well unless you made something that could hold meat and be cooked well done and if you ate it raw that would cause a disease because of the bacteria. Lots of people would die of dehydration and starvation or even getting sick since they don't have any way to treat it. If you get stranded for a long time you would be adapted to the surroundings around you. You would need to be smart to survive because you need to think of long term situations.

Create a list of characters from the novel The Lord of the Flies and add details about them using textual evidence from the novel. My example lists the characters you need to use.

1. Ralph is a fair twelve year old boy who seems to not like his peers that he has been stranded with. He tried to offhand and not to obviously uninterested

2. Piggy is one of the characters and he complains too much sometimes. He appears in the beginning of the story and continues to be on there.

3. Johnny was a carefree person as he was described in the story. It says "his face was dark with violent pleasure of making this stupendous noise" (Golding 18).

4. Jack would be one as well he is kind of a leader and can be bossy he wants to be their leader and he tries to be one.

5. Sam and Eric the twins. The story described them by saying "they grinned together, they were chunky and vital" (Golding 19).

6. Choir they were a group of boys and Ralph noticed them and described them as "dressed in strangely eccentric clothing. Shorts, Shirts, and a different garments they carried in their hands" (Golding 18).

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 after yourself

5. Communicate effectively

6. do your job

7. Do not kill each other

The most important rule is communicate effectively because you need to talk and not argue with your group because you don't want to have problems with the person that can help you.

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

There are kids on the island, Ralph is twelve years and a few months old (Golding 10). Piggy is also a kid who doesn't know where he is and they have realized that there are no grownups with them and come to a conclusion that more kids are on the island but they are scattered around and want to find them. The theme would be survival they struggle and have to find ways to survive.

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.

Problems the reader knows about is how will the boys get out of the island they need to find a way to call for help which the boys thought of but didn't succeed because the fire got out of control and killed a boy and they didn't even notice. They have had so many problems and sometimes they don't know how to solve them. One of the problems they also had was arguing too much, they made a rule where if you or someone was holding a shell they were able to talk and that soon got out of control as well because if one person was talking someone would talk too and they would get mad and change the rules and the arguing would go back and forth.

Simon symbolizes goodness.

Describe the Beast that seems to be stalking the island. Use the text as backup for your info.

The kids describe the beast in shadows and when Ralph was dreaming he said "I saw something move among the trees, something big and horrid"(Golding 85). A dream could be something it could become true it seems to foreshadowing because it keeps talking about the beast. The beast also is from the water says Percival "The beast comes out of the sea" (Golding 88). They also say where the beast might live Jack says "The rock makes a sort of bridge. There's only one way up. And the thing might live there" (Golding 103). Jack suggest that the beast might live up in there since no one in the group has been there yet. Sam and Eric say they saw the beast and report it to the group and say "It was furry. There was something moving behind it's behind its head--wings, teeth, claws" (Golding 100). The littluns always seem to report the beast to the big kids so maybe it imaginary or actually real. The group is going to hunt for the beast in the rocks where no one has been yet until now and the kids are scared because they don't know what to expect says Ralph " 'Course I'm frightened who wouldn't be?' (Golding 100).

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.

When the boys go the rocks and look for the beast they seem to be having fun except for Ralph and when Roger finds out that Ralph wants to put a fire on the mountains he yells at Roger and says "We want smoke and you go wasting time, you roll rocks" (Golding 108). Roger than says "We've got plenty of time" (Golding 108). Indicating that he has lost hope of getting rescued and they keep losing hope everyday because they don't try to get rescued. Another example is when they argue about the conch since piggy is always trying to complain about not getting attention. Jack says "I got the conch, we don't need the conch anymore we know who ought to say things" (Golding 101-102). He is saying the rules don't matter because they are always arguing they are becoming carefree.

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.

Rituals are events that people know about and I have picked weddings and one of the phrases they say is " I now pronounce you husband and wife " this is useful in weddings because it is telling everybody that they are now married and that's important. It is also very exciting knowing that these two people who are in love get to be together now. Another phrase people say is " Do you (name) take this man (name) to have and to hold him from this day forward for better and for worse and in sickness and in health to love and to cherish till' death do you apart ? ". This is important because its like a promise and they have to keep that promise. Another phrase would be " You may now kiss the bride ". This is helpful in the ceremony because it is a special moment in the two people and its like a symbol in a way because its their first kiss as a new married couple.

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.

After seeing the beast on top of the mountains the group was arguing and one of the affected person is jack because he does things that effect everybody when seeing the beast. It causes arguments with Ralph and causes the group to split up. Jack gets mad when Ralph said his hunters were not good or useful because they wanted to hunt the beast and Ralph says "Boys are armed with sticks" (Golding 127). Jack then left the group to go somewhere else. Jack thinks he could do anything with the beast and he's not scared, he tried to do something and got his hopes down when Ralph said what he said. He then becomes chief from his own group and makes problems.

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

Simon has died and his body is in the ocean the tide has taken him. Simon was beaten by his friends because they thought he was the beast that was on top of the mountain. Simon was already in a bad state because he had fainted and had a bloody nose, he untangled the "beast" and was going to tell the rest of the group (Golding 146). The group went to see jack because he had a feast and when they were dancing the litteluns saw Simon all weak and screamed and when they were singing their little chant song they were beating Simon and all he was trying to do is tell them there was no beast they called Simon the beast. "The beast was on its knees in the center its arm folded over its face. It was crying out against the abominable noise, something about a body on the hill" (Golding 152).

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.

There are many types of groups and there are going to be positive and negative things for a group. A negative thing would be not everyone will agree with everything someone says, then the group will argue and they will get mad and won't talk to each other. Positive things that can happen is you can trust each other and can rely on one another. You know who you can come to when you're having problems. I can relate to this because in my group of friends i know i can trust them but when someone does something wrong they get mad at each other and one person has to solve the problem between them and at the end of the day they are both happy with each other. In the book Ralph and Jack are always fighting about the smallest things like the conch and if it is a rule or not and if its important. In every group there will be someone who doesn't want to agree but you just have to be flexible.

“Which is better - to have rules and agree, or to hunt and kill?” 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.

It is better to hunt and kill because at the end of chapter 11 the group that they once were is separated and will never make up because they are always arguing. To hunt and kill is better because they should get their own food since they are on their own. killing has already happened so its too late for that, from the beginning they have been killing because they killed the kid with the mulberry birthmark from starting the fire but they didn't care or notice. This means that all the kids will always have competition with one another. "They've got our fire, they stole it" (Golding 169). They were competing for the fire and it didn't end too well. Either way they would still fight whether they hunted or didn't. It was the boys fault because some of them didn't want to cooperate and go along with whatever. Jack and Ralph hated each other so they were a problem for the group because they couldn't agree on a lot of things even if it were the smallest things.

"But the island was scorched up like dead wood"(Golding 202).

This picture and caption represents the whole book because it shows how the island looked like after living there for months. The kids described the island as ugly it might not have looked like it but the things that happened were horrible and those memories would never fade. They had said that at the end of the book so the readers could get an idea of what the boys would always remember. The kids also struggled with living there because of the all the problems and arguments they had, they did even if they didn't mean to or if they did or if the person they appeared to be wasn't actually them. At the end of the story everything got intense and new revealing came out the readers were surprised and that was the best part. The picture matches up with the caption because it says the island is dead and it isn't lively anymore everyone is confused because they have no idea where the officer came from. Simon, piggy and the kid with the mulberry mark had died and they didn't get to live, Ralph was in grief because of what had happened to piggy he said "The true, wise friend called piggy"(Golding 202). The whole book was about getting along with each other and the consequences of what would happen and some things didn't turn out so good but some did.

What did you think about the novel? Explain how you best enjoyed the novel: the British man, reading on your own, or me reading.

The novel was a great story. I enjoyed it because the book had good imagery or atleast to me i had little scenarios in my head.It has a good theme because its important, its about Civilization and have good sportsmanship but in the book that was mostly opposite. The kids usually argued about lots of things and only agreed on certain things like the jobs they had except Jack and Ralph. Another thing i liked about the book was they had an adventure during their time living there. The book was intense toward the end and that's the best part i think because i had questions about it like what will happen to them? Who dies? Who lives? Anyone who reads this book and likes these types of books will enjoy it because it has a mix of everything.
