  • Civilization vs. Savagery
    • Identify the two sides
  • Be able to read a quote/passage and understand what is being revealed about a character.

1. What does the following quote reveal about Jack?

"I've got the conch. Ralph thinks your cowards, running away from the boar and the beast. And that's not all." pg 126

2. Read the following quote: "We got no fire on the mountain. But what's wrong with a fire down here? A fire could be built on them rocks. On the sand, even. We'd make smoke just the same."

    • In this quote, how is Piggy indirectly characterized?
identify figurative language simile metaphor personification
Identify Figurative LanguageSimile, Metaphor, Personification
  • “The squirrel leapt on the wings of the wind and clung to another standing tree, eating downwards.”
  • “The beach between the palm terrace and the water was a thin stick.”
  • “The sandy edge of the pool loomed up like a hillside.”

*Be prepared to explain why figurative language is used-think beyond the image

  • Direct: specifically tells you qualities about a character
  • Indirect: clues as to who the person is based on STEAL (usually speech or action)

Hint: Use what you already know about the character to help you choose a logical answer
