Visual Exploration of a Theme

Use “Explain Everything” to create a visual exploration of a theme from either The Secret Life of Bees or The Lord of the Flies.

Your project should:

  • Explore a theme from either of the works, such as self-consciousness, crossing boundaries, metacognition, confrontation of the past, freedom, human nature, duality, democracy, etc.
  • Employ images--this project is primarily visual.
  • Include 2-4 quotations from the text in written or spoken form.
  • Be in the 60-90 second range.
  • Include a title page at the beginning.
  • Include image URLs at the end as a works cited.

Your project should not:

  • Analyze the book.
  • Include a lot of text.
  • Use images from the movie versions of the texts.
