Standards Focus: Main and Subordinate Characters, Lord of the Flies

High schoolers consider how authors mold different types of characters with an instructive language arts resource. As they identify seven characters in William Golding's Lord of the Flies, learners determine whether each character is main or subordinate, as well their motivations, conflicts, and contributions to the plot.
