24 Apr

Pds 1&4- Lord of the Flies–> Literary term- An allegory is a story with more than one level of meaning—a literal level and one or more symbolic levels. An allegory allows a writer to tell a story about literal characters and to make a moral, religious, or political point. In the Lord of the Flies, the author makes direct comments on life and society through the use of allegory. Besides having a literal surface meaning, the events, settings or characters also stand for ideas or qualities and have a second meaning on that level. Golding reserves his allegory for certain aspects of society.

We will focus today on contrasts. There is an activity that will walk you through several contrasts in the book. You may work with a partner on this.

Pd 2- The House on Mango Street–> Today we will continue reading the chapters. Make sure you are taking excellent notes. We will be writing about this book later and good notes make it much easier.

Pd 8- Night–> Today we will continue reading the chapters. Make sure you are taking excellent notes. We will be writing about this book later and good notes make it much easier.
