Creating a Buzzzz: Class set of Lord of the Flies

My Students

Our reading scores are just not where they should be and my students and I are going to change that. The one thing that makes stronger readers is reading often, reading a variety of genres and being able to reflect and understand the intent of that book.

We have a lovely school library but being able to read one book as an entire class helps students to share their ideas and understanding with others.

This is why Id like to increase my classrooms class sets of a few titles.

My Project

I love this classic! I can't wait to share it with my students, especially the boys. I always have trouble getting my middle school student to connect with characters and really grasp the themes in books. I can't think of a better title that Lord of the Flies to help them to understand character, plot, setting and theme like this book.

Lord of the Flies gives everyone in the classroom a unique coming of age experience an allows for lots of student-led discussions.

Not only is it an amazing book, but there are so many lessons and activities that can be pulled from this one novel.
