  • Because of the nature of this lesson as a culminating review, students need to have completed reading the novel Lord of the Flies prior to this assignment. Alternatively, elements of this lesson could be woven into the reading of the novel, with students stopping to create text responses as the appropriate events occur.
  • Make copies of necessary handouts.
  • Bookmark the Graphic Map on student computers and familiarize yourself with the tool. If necessary, download the Flash plug-in from the Technical Support page.
  • Arrange for students to have access to computers during Session One.
