Lord of the Flies, written by William Golding, has four very important dynamic characters. A dynamic character is a character that develops and grows during the course of the story. Ralph, Jack, Piggy, and Simon are four dynamic characters in Lord of the Flies that adapt to their new lifestyles in different ways. Jack is a very important dynamic character in Lord of the Flies because he goes through the most changes during the novel. While on the island, Jack has many life experiences that change him forever. Jack never thought he would live his life the way he is living his life in the island. Jack’s authoritative figure, savage-like/instinctual behavior, and violence are three qualities that make Jack a dynamic character.
Jack ordered that the boys put their head of the dead pig on a stick, but the boys follow him out of fear. Essentially, Ralph changes from leader to fugitive and Jack changes from choirboy to savage and leader.

Then, his mom throws them out the window and a magic beanstalk through the night. Jack decided to climb the beanstalk several time and while up there he would take stuff from the giant while he was asleep. When Jack tried to steal a magical harm, the giant woke up. Jack rans down the beanstalk with the giant behind him. When he got to the bottom he took his ax and cut down the beanstalk.

Now that Kate was on the outskirts of the airport hanger and away from the strange glowing force field, still visible in the distance. The situation felt surreal, and Kate wondered if this was just a dream. Presently, she was cognizant that there was something foreign in the brisk early morning air, glittering like snow, feeling like sand as the tiny flecks dusted her skin. The bulldog nudging and licking Kate's hand forced reality back. In her peripheral, Kate observed Mr.Jacks emerge from the nearby hedgerow." I was so hopeful that my message would be discovered by someone." Kate cried out.

The children landed uncharted island far from any semblance of police, parents, or even teachers. The island was almost like the “Neverland” that Disney taught us about years ago, but without Tinkerbell and a magical home with all their needs. Jack and the children in this adventure were in a heap of trouble. They were many, some smaller and some bigger (littleuns and bigguns). These kids had to organize themselves into some sort of unit, to more efficiently find a way home. That is where the trouble begins. When one or more humans come together, a hierarchy is always established. Similar to when one goes to a restaurant and the waitress only addresses our father for the majority of the tables decisions. When this hierarchy forms, the decisions this leader takes will always be classified as good or evil, and the society will be judged by the character at their forefront. In William Golding’s novel “Lord of The Flies”, Jack Merridew is the character that takes leadership in the society and proves humanity is inherently evil by demonstrating human’s: selfish tendencies, competitive nature, and hopelessness.
Just a few hours ago, Kate would have never thought she could escape the force field. That sounded like a crazy dream, but now she was free and so was Mr. Jacks and Darby. They were in the outskirts of Philadelphia and it looked like a normal suburban neighborhood. Though it was obvious that no one had been in these houses for a while. They must have disappeared… Kate thought to herself. There was no sign of human life still being here.
In the story “Like Jack and Me” by Mavis Jukes, Alex thinks that Jake, his stepfather, would not want to see him doing ballet, and only shows his mother about his new movements learned in ballet class.

1. The genre of "How Jack Went to Seek His Fortune" can be classified as a fairytale. This is because of the author's usage of the words "Once upon a time.." and the way the characters are incorporated into the story as Jack seeks his fortune. This story could also qualify as fiction because this excerpt from "How Jack Went to Seek His Fortune" is non-realistic due to its fairytale qualities.
A good leader is someone who cares about everyone. They are loyal, and listens to everyone’s ideas. They are smart, strong, and can make tough decisions. A good leader could fight, but a better leader can choose not to. In the Lord of the Flies, a novel by William Golding, is about a boy named Ralph who wanted to get rescued and made leadership choices based on that, but another boy named Jack who prevented rescue by splitting the group up and turning survival into a game. Ralph and Jack were meant to be in the same novel because Golding wanted to show how the wrong leadership can go wrong, and on what leader you follow can be an effect on how you survive.
"Dammit," he cursed aloud, berating his thoughtless actions not for the first time in his short life. "Good one, Jackson." His arms wound tightly around his legs, and with a soft thump his forehead met his knees. Despite his best efforts to calm himself with forced, even breaths, he still felt the beginnings of a monster of a headache.
This is a story about a young fellow named Jack, who wasn’t a lot older than you when this happened. Now Jack lived with his mother and daddy on a small farm, but they were in bad shape. The crops didn’t make good that year, Jack’s daddy was having to go further and further to find work and do a little hunting so they’d have something to eat. Jack decided that he was big enough to go out and get a job so he could help buy food for his family. So Jack’s mother packed him some food to take, (Jack was especially fond of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches), gave him a big hug and sent him out the door with prayers for his safety. Jack traveled down the road for almost a week, his peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were all gone, and he was really getting hungry when he saw a great big farm off to the side of the road. He thought surely they’d give him something to eat, even if it was just some apples or carrots. So Jack went up to the house and knocked on the door. A really kind looking man came to the door and saw how pitifully hungry Jack looked and took him inside for lunch. Now the farmer was a really nice man, but his wife was mean. She didn’t like sharing their food with anyone and she really didn’t like Jack. She was sure he’d steal something so she decided she had to get rid of him. But the farmer offered Jack a job on the farm, if he’d take care of the animals. So Jack went out and fed the pigs, and the cows, and the chickens and worked as
Cecily and Algernon both seem to be very happy with each other. But even though they are extremely happy with each other at the beginning, what will Cecily think when she starts to see that Algernon has a bad habit of spending more than what he has? My thoughts are that it will not turn out well, unlike Jack and Gwendolen relationship where they both actually know how to save money.
