Lord of the Flies Gifted and Talented Challenge Pack

It clearly shows students how to achieve the highest grade possible. K Greaves, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

A challenging activity pack which stretches your gifted and more able students during their exploration of Lord of the Flies at GCSE. The activities demonstrate how to achieve the highest grades possible using aspects of Bloom’s Taxonomy and give students control over their own learning.

The resource covers the key areas of the novel: important events, characters, context, language, structure, form, themes, ideas and interpretations. Within each key area, engaging and thought-provoking activities aim to:

  • Prompt the recall of important points, aid comprehension and reinforce clear, advanced understanding
  • Support literal and abstract analyses
  • Enable students to apply their knowledge of the novel to a new situation or an unseen extract, encourage individual interpretations and stimulate new, creative and individual ideas

Teacher’s notes and answers have been included for the more challenging tasks.

Achieving that A*!
Exam-style activities are also included throughout the resource to help students practise their essay-writing skills by using an annotated response to show the best way of achieving an A*, suitable for AQA, WJEC and OCR English Literature.

Also available: Lord of the Flies Interactive Guide for iPad

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5104)
"A detailed resource which is pitched at higher ability students. The resource is ready to use and you can dip in and out of it easily. Any member of staff can pick up this resource and use it instantly and the students feel they have a detailed knowledge of the text and are much more confident." K Greaves, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
"This resource also caters for different learning methods AND different angles of approach. I thought that the icons were particularly inspired, offering an easy-browse aspect to the resource and making it appealing to visual learners. I like the fact that there are no large chunks of pages dedicated to paraphrasing the story - the pack is purely focused on getting students to think about what they have read. The way exam answers are covered from the start is spot on. This kind of resource could certainly bring enthusiasm back for the text! A positively overwhelming resource constructed with great care. Great for anyone with a deep love of teaching this text who has the right ability teaching group." Penglais English Department and Ind. Reviewer
"I love the different types of activities and the icons used to represent them. This resource encourages the students to make revision notes and get into a revision routine, is very clear for students to follow, encourages them to be independent, encourages students to look much deeper into the text and supports them through the process. It clearly shows students how to achieve the highest grade possible." K Greaves, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
