Advanced Placement Classroom: Lord of the Flies takes a fresh approach to a school classic by offering an abundance of student-centered classroom ideas. A large menu of rigorous choices will engage both teachers and students in the process of building interpretations through close reading, collaboration, and active learning. Clearly explained prereading, reading, and post-reading tasks help students to develop their individual encounters with the text and then enter the conversation of literary scholars. Additional chapters explore the interface between the world of the text and the text in the world, including technology integration. Sample AP prompts and essay analyses are included.

Advanced Placement Classroom: Lord of the Flies
As a university literacy consultant to high needs urban high schools, I have seen Dr. Duggan’s engagingly rigorous approach bring teachers as well as students into a deeper appreciation of challenging texts.  I highly recommend this guide as a way to arouse readers’ curiosity and inspire them to authentically undertake close readings in search of answers to the questions they are sure to generate.
