Transcript of School of Fear

By Gitty Daneshvari School of Fear Brief Summary Major Characters Madeline Masterson - Anything that crawls Major Conflict Everybody is afraid of something,
right? For example, Garrison Feldman is terrified of deep water, Lulu Punchalower is scared of confined spaces, Theo Bartholomew is petrified of dying, and Madeline Masterson is deathly afraid of bugs. Well if these four children don't conquer their fears in six weeks or less, at the
School of Fear, they will face the terrible
consequences of failing. Connections My friend Alexandra, is claustrophobic,
just like Lulu, one of the main characters
in the book. Project By Grace Hawley
8th Grade Literature Why I Chose This Book Lessons Who would this book appeal to? Theodore (Theo) Bartholomew - Death Lulu Punchalower - Small spaces Garrison Feldman - Large bodies of water Mrs. Wellington - A "beauty queen" in the "beauty pageant of life" (Teacher) Schmidty - groundskeeper/cook/office assistant I really think that Maggie would
enjoy this book, because in 6th Grade
we looked up the names of really
weird fears on the computer and at the
beginning of every chapter they list a
name of an odd fear. Four students enrolled in the School of Fear need to conquer their individual fears, learn to work together, and realize who their true enemies are. School of Fear has been sitting on
the book shelf in my room for a really
time. I haven't bothered to read it,
until recently when I knew I needed
a book to do my report on. The funny
thing was that a couple of my friends and I
were at a sleepover discussing our "fears." The School of Fear, is similar to Lord of the Flies in many ways, because in both stories the students and the group of boys have to learn to work together and realize what their main problem is. Don't let your own fears or problems
control your life. Don't judge a book by its cover. Two minds put together are
stronger than one.
