  • “We’re not civilized,” he says. “The idea that we’re more civilized than people in the Middle Ages went out the window with secret torture chambers in Baghdad . . . we are no better morally than we have been in the past, and we need to recognize that. The idea that moral progress goes with technological progress is nonsense. If we want civilization, we have to become morally civilized or we’ll just destroy ourselves.”  Ronald Wright What is America?

  • Lord of the Flies exemplification essay prompt: One of the strongest human drives seems to be the desire for power.  Write an essay in which you discuss how a character in Lord of the Flies either struggles to free himself from the power of others or seeks to gain power over others.  Demonstrate how the author uses this power struggle to enhance the meaning of the work. Avoid plot summary. Repeat after me: Every essay is an argument. Every essay is an argument. To make that argument, you will need to write five paragraphs with an introduction, three body paragraphs, and a conclusion.  Further, you must use and analyze properly cited quotations from the novel to support your assertions.Specific directions:  double space, one side only, MLA headings, page numbers, and citations, and a title.  You will need to produce a rough draft for peer editing and two final drafts – one for your classroom folder and one for the traveling portfolio.
