Lord of the Flies Chapter 5 and 6 Socratic

Today, we are going to do a silent discussion over Chapters 5 and 6.  Everyone must answer the following questions I have asked and once you are done, you must respond to at least 3-4 (or more) other people. When you are done making comments, you must always end with a question-interpretive or critical. I expect textual support (specific quotes from text) to back up your claims.  You will need to read people's questions and comments, but I would like to see depth with discussion threads and for you to be original in your thought and not just restate what someone else already mentioned.

Please do this part first, on your own, as you will get an individual grade for how you answer these questions: You can answer all these questions within one Comment box, but label each response with the corresponding number.

1. What two quotes (1 from each chapter) do you believe were most poignant in revealing an overall theme (a main message)?  Please give the quote from the chapter and then write your analysis.

2.  How is fear playing a role in these chapters?   You must give one quote, from one of the chapters, to support your claim.

3.  How is power and control shifting within these chapters and what is it creating?  Use a quote to support your response.

4.  Please write one interpretive and one critical question

Now that you are done with this, please begin to read other people's questions and comments and respond.  Make sure you are using as much textual evidence as possible.
