Examine early decisions in LOTF

When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice. -William James

Piggy, Ralph, and Jack make, or do not make, significant decisions in the first 3 chapters of Lord of the Flies. What are the common decisions they are learning to make? What are some of the mistakes they have made related to their decision making? What decisions have they made, or not made, to reinforce their fate? What values are revealed by the decisions they have made? According to Jack, Piggy, or Ralph, what is worth fighting for?

Perhaps you’d like to discuss the little’uns, instead. How have the decisions of others affected them? What role does emotion play in their decision making? Can their “going along with the crowd” be justified?
