WNB: "My idea of paradise is..."
Students worked in groups to develop the perfect survival kit. We then discussed which items were most necessary in the kit.
Students read background information on the author and novel and shared new or surprising details that connected to the book.
We focused on chapters 1 and 2 of Lord of the Flies today, looking at imagery and figures of speech that connect to the idea of paradise.
Tomorrow, we will discuss chapter 3. We will also check answers to the SAT writing practice 1 handout that students received at the end of class.
