Transcript of Lord Of The Flies Unit Plan

Chapter 9: "A View to a Death"
Unit Plan for Lord of the Flies
Chapter 1 (Day 1)
Chapter 2
Chapter 3: "Huts on the Beach"
first conflict/verbal argument develops (revality Ralph - Jack)
Ralph - thinks about the good for the group
Jack - lead by bloodlust and desire for power
they are children --> unable to state feelings articulately
conflict "civilization vs. savagery" still tilted in favour of civilization
Jack has to justify his desire to hunt
Simon's character ist clearly shown in this chapter
Simon emerges contrast to Ralph and Jack
CHARACTER CONTRASTS
RALPH
orderly forces of civilization
JACK
primal, instinctual urges
SIMON
kind, generous nature, helpful, disciplined
dedication to the common good
sympathy
strong connection to nature
While his morality comes from within, the others lose it the longer they are away from civilization
Chapter 4: "Painted Faces and Long Hair"
society resembles a political state
frightened "littluns" - masses of common people
older boys - positions of power/importance
Ralph, Simon, Piggy: nice to "littluns"
--> use power for the good of the group & protection
Jack, Roger: cruel to them
--> use power for own desires, act on their impulses, treat others like servants
Conflict "Jack vs. Ralph" develops
Jack's irresponsibility for signal fire,
obsession of hunting
Ralph sees chance for group to be rescued
Piggy has been bullied since the beginning
harrassment intensifies when Jack hits him openly
some hunters are even crueler
Ralph doesn't see why physical bullying creates a self-gratifying sense of power
boys' failure to understand each others' points of view creates a gulf between them
Chapter 8
died like Jesus, after finding out about human truth (difference: Jesus dies for beliefs not boy's delusion
shows power of evil within human soul
Simon dies before telling anyone about what he found out
SIMONS DEATH
Chapter 11: "Castle Rock"
Chapter 12
Enduring Understandings:
The learner will understand that…
• Humans can have a desire for power and control.
• Humans are capable of reaching great heights as well as great depths.
• Power can corrupt humans.
• Societies create devices to deal with natural human desires.
• Humans have essential characteristics intrinsic to human nature that can be judged as either strongly good or strongly evil.

Chapter 6
Chapter 7
Chapters 1-8: Learning Centers
Simon
seen as a religious, kindhearted character
feels a deep connection with nature
and the wilderness
realizes it's not a real, physical beast that inspires the hunters’ behavior
seems to hear the lord of the flies speaking to him
--> threatening with what he fears the most

In the end, Simon is both natural and good in a world where such a combination seems impossible.

Outcomes
Learners will know:
• Golding’s novel is an allegory of World War II.
• Authors use symbolism to reveal a message.
• The society within the novel is a microcosm of the world at the time and a macrocosm of each individual.

Characterization

Characterization- the way in which authors convey information about their characters.
2 types of characterization are:
direct- when an author tells readers what a character is like (e.g. "George was cunning and greedy.")
indirect- when an author shows what a character is like by portraying his or her actions, speech, or thoughts (eg. "On the crowded subway, George slipped his hand into the man's coat pocket and withdrew the wallet, undetected.").
Descriptions of a character's appearance, behavior, interests, way of speaking, and other mannerisms are all part of characterization.

Do Now: Journal Entry
Amid the anxiety and fears of the group of boys, Ralph says, "We want to be rescued; and of course, we shall be rescued" (37). And then we are told, "The simple statement, unbacked by any proof but the weight of Ralph's new authority, brought light and happiness" (37).
Why do you suppose it is important for a leader of a group in a bad situation to always keep a positive attitude, whether he or she really feels that way or not?

Conflict
A conflict is a struggle between opposing forces.
There are two main kinds of conflict in stories: internal and external.

Internal
A struggle that takes place in a character's mind is called internal conflict.
For example, a character may have to decide between right and wrong or between two solutions to a problem.
Sometimes, a character must deal with his or her own mixed feelings or emotions.
Man vs. Self

External
A struggle between a character and an outside force is an external conflict.
Characters may face several types of outside forces.
Man vs. Man
Man vs. Nature
Man vs. Society

What internal or external conflicts have the characters faced so far in the novel?

Beginning of Chpt. 9 Summary
Simon awakens and finds the air dark and humid with an approaching storm. His nose is bleeding, and he staggers towards the mountain in a daze. He crawls up the hill and in the falling light, sees the dead pilot with his flapping parachute. Watching the parachute rise and fall, with the wind, Simon realizes that the boys have mistaken this harmless object for the deadly beast which has plunged the entire group into chaos. When Simon sees the corpse of the parachutist, he begins to vomit. When he is finished, he untangles the parachute lines, freeing the parachute from the rocks. Anxious to prove to the group the beast is not real after all, Simon stumbles towards the distant light of the fire at Jack's feast to tell the boys what he has seen.
Chapter 9 Discussion Questions
Answer in complete sentences. Use notebook paper if necessary to complete your answer.

Identifying Facts
1. After Simon regains consciousness, what does he come upon as he walks across the mountaintop?
2. As it begins to rain, Ralph reminds Jack’s followers that they don’t have shelters. Why does he bring this up now?
3. Immediately after Ralph’s tirade, Jack tells his tribe to start dancing. Why? 4. Do the chanting, dancing boys recognize Simon? Why or why not? 5. What happens to the figure on the mountaintop? 6. What is the effect of the tide washing away Simon’s body?

Interpreting Meanings
7. Discuss the organization of Jack’s tribe and his position in it. Then discuss the kind of organization Ralph tried to establish with the whole group. How would you label each leader and each system? Which would you prefer to be a member of? Explain why.
8. The Lord of the Flies’ prediction that Simon would be killed by the other boys proves to be accurate. Did you expect this, or were you surprised? Was Simon interfering, something the Lord of the Flies warned against, or was he trying to save them all from the real beast, themselves?
9. What is the significance of the figure on the mountaintop dropping onto the beach and then washing out to sea? Remember Simon’s efforts to cry out his news to the chanting, dancing tribesmen.

Lord of the Flies
Summary of Chapter 12
Ralph hides in the jungle and thinks miserably about the chaos that has overrun the island. He thinks about the deaths of Simon and Piggy and realizes that all vestiges of civilization have been stripped from the island. He stumbles across the sow’s head, the Lord of the Flies, now merely a gleaming white skull—as white as the conch shell, he notes. Angry and disgusted, Ralph knocks the skull to the ground and takes the stake it was impaled on to use as a weapon against Jack.

That night, Ralph sneaks down to the camp at the Castle Rock and finds Sam and Eric guarding the entrance. The twins give him food but refuse to join him. They tell him that Jack plans to send the entire tribe after him the next day. Ralph hides in a thicket and falls asleep. In the morning, he hears Jack talking and torturing one of the twins to find out where Ralph is hiding. Several boys try to break into the thicket by rolling a boulder, but the thicket is too dense. A group of boys tries to fight their way into the thicket, but Ralph fends them off. Then Ralph smells smoke and realizes that Jack has set the jungle on fire in order to smoke him out. Ralph abandons his hiding place and fights his way past Jack and a group of his hunters. Chased by a group of body-painted warrior-boys wielding sharp wooden spears, Ralph plunges frantically through the undergrowth, looking for a place to hide. At last, he ends up on the beach, where he collapses in exhaustion, his pursuers close behind.

Suddenly, Ralph looks up to see a naval officer standing over him. The officer tells the boy that his ship has come to the island after seeing the blazing fire in the jungle. Jack’s hunters reach the beach and stop in their tracks upon seeing the officer. The officer matter-of-factly assumes the boys are up to, as he puts it, “fun and games.” When he learns what has happened on the island, the officer is reproachful: how could this group of boys, he asks—and English boys at that—have lost all reverence for the rules of civilization in so short a time? For his part, Ralph is overwhelmed by the knowledge that he has been rescued, that he will escape the island after coming so close to a violent death. He begins to sob, as do the other boys. Moved and embarrassed, the naval officer turns his back so that the boys may regain their composure. (Passage- pg. 191-end)

Characterization is the act of creating and developing a character.
A writer can use
direct characterization
when stating or describing a character’s traits.
Indirect characterization
is when an author shows a character’s personality through his or actions, thoughts, feelings, and words, or through another character’s observations and reactions.
Indirect characterization relies on the reader to put together the clues in order to figure out the character’s personality.


It is important to remember that characterization relies upon the character’s traits and not upon his or her physical appearance.
