Character Journal Assignment
Gr.11 English Lord of the Flies
Please read ALL of the instructions below carefully.
This assignment requires you to write journal entries from the point of view of one of the
four main characters (Ralph, Piggy, Simon, or Jack) of Lord of the Flies.
� Your journal must have three entries, each 1 paragraph long (typed, double-spaced,
size 12 point font, 1-inch margins → remember that standard paragraph length should be
½ to ¾ of a page). Please write AS YOUR CHARACTER, in first person, and sign your
journal entry with your character’s name.
� Make sure you cover three of the following important scenes in your journal: the first
meeting on the platform, the fire going out and Jack’s first kill, the arrival of the “beast
from the air,” and/or the hunting of Ralph and the rescue.
�Note: if you choose a character that dies during the novel then you can only deal with
the events that occurred before the character’s death.
� Your journal must show a careful reading of the novel and should “bring your
character to life.” Use descriptive detail and expressive emotion in your writing, but
avoid excessive melodrama and clichés.
