Lord of the Flies - Choose your Leader (100 points) The plane transporting you to safety has been shot down and crashed on a deserted island during World War II. In order to survive, you must elect the best leader to ensure your safety and survival. As you look around your group, four boys come forward offering themselves as candidates for leader of your make- shift tribe. They are: Ralph – the effect of society’s rules on mankind Jack – the savage/wild side of humanity Piggy – the scientific, rational side of society/humanity Simon – the natural good in humanity You rally behind the boy one of the boys, only to realize that the rest of the group has chosen to split evenly behind each of the other candidates for tribe leader. It is now your job to gather enough evidence and information to get your boy elected leader of the tribe. Project Outline You are responsible for making a 10-minute presentation with a visual aide to give in class that will act as your election campaign for your assigned character. Your presentation should include: A slogan for your character that attaches him to the theme of the novel: “…An attempt to trace the defects of society back to the defects of human nature” (204). At least six character traits that you feel are strengths that your character possesses. Each of your traits must be supported with specific pages (at least two instances) in the book where there is either direct or indirect characterization of your character. (The more support you find for your traits, the better!) At least four examples of your characters leadership. Again, you must point towards specific pages in the book where you see your character best exhibiting the qualities of a good leader. You will be allowed to have one note card (3” by 5”) each during your presentation. You should also be prepared to thwart the election campaigns of the other characters. In order to do this, you must find two examples of bad character traits for each of the other characters. Each of these traits must be supported with at least two specific quotations from the book. You should also find two examples where the leadership of the other characters is flawed or backfires, supported with two specific quotations from the book. Your visual aide should be at least the size of a poster and include: The information that you are giving in your oral presentation. Visual representations of your character. You may cut these out of magazines, draw them, etc. You must have at least three pictures of your character on your poster. (You may NOT use pictures of the actors from any Lord of the Flies movies or covers of Lord of the Flies books.) A campaign poster for your character. (Can be on an 8 1/2” by 11” piece of paper) Everyone in your group must contribute equally to all parts of the project. You will be responsible for keeping track of what you did for the project and what others did for the project and turn it in on the day of your presentation. All pieces of your oral presentation (including your evidence against other characters) must be typed and organized into a packet that will be turned into me on the day of your presentation. This does not have to be in an essay format, but it must be readable and easy for me to navigate through (i.e. I should be able to find all parts of your presentation easily).
