Lord of the Flies Final LAP

Minor Grade We have just finished reading and discussing Lord of the Flies. In two well-developed paragraphs, discuss Golding’s overall argument. You may use the notes to help you. Although for contextual reasons you may refer to previous chapters, please use examples and quotations from chapters 10-12 as your evidence. Think about the events that occur in these chapters: the savages stealing the glasses, the breaking of the glasses and conch, Piggy’s death, Jack’s final hunt, and the boys’ rescue. Having trouble getting started? Try using this as a template for your thesis: “In his novel Lord of the Flies, William Golding argues ________________________________________.” Then your topic sentence may be something along the lines of: “Golding relies on his characterization of Jack at the end of the novel to further his theme.” Obviously, there are several things you could use besides “characterization of Jack.” That’s just an example.  Your next topic sentence would be about something different. This is due Monday, April 23. You will be given fifteen minutes in class next time to complete it, but do not count on writing the whole thing during the time allotted to you in class.
