LOTF: One Word Assignment

Each student will be assigned a chapter from Lord of the Flies (see your assigned chapter below). For this assignment you are to choose a word that has a strong connection to the chapter you have been assigned. Your word should not only describe the characters but also relate to the chapter in both tone and mood. You’ll share your word in class using an 8.5×11 inch sheet of paper that will be projected using the document camera. On the paper, include the following:

  • Chapter # and title
  • Your word
  • Denotation and Connotation (5 pts) – Denotation is a dictionary definition; connotation is other ideas or images associated with the word.
  • Description of how this word relates to your chapter (10 pts)
  • At least two quotes from the chapter that support your choice (10 pts)
  • At least two images that relate to the chapter and to your word (5 pts) – think beyond literal images, but also metaphorical or symbolic ones, too.

Here is an example from Act 4 Scene 1 of Much Ado about Nothing.

DURING CLASS TODAY

Review your assigned chapter. In your English notebook, begin brainstorming words that describe your chapter. The word does NOT need to be in the chapter. Look for quotes that will help to support your choice of word.


DUE DATE

Thursday, 1/7, at the beginning of class. Be prepared to present to the class and explain your choices.
