Opener: A “moral compass” is an internal sense of what is right and wrong, independent of rules others give you or what people tell you to do. In Lord of the Flies, who makes judgments based on moral principles (vs. based on feelings like fear, hunger, or desire for fun)? What evidence do we have? Does having a moral “compass” help that character while they are on the island? Why or why not?
