A Wonderful Teacher Time-Saver, Perfect For CCSS
In many grade levels, the Common Core Standards call for comparing the novel text to a different version, especially a film version. That's great, but where can you get reliable information about the comparison to know if student responses are accurate or complete?
This Study Guide compares the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding to the movie Lord of the Flies (1990) starring Balthazar Getty, Chris Furrh, and Daniel Pipoly. This is the most accessible film version of the book via DVD and streaming. Even though the movie leaves out the parachutist, turns the British schoolboys into Americans, and invents the character of Captain Benson, the basic plot, setting, symbols, characters, and group dynamics are the same as the book.
