A childs mind is a great mind. The mind is great because they only have on what they want on it and don't have to worry about anything else. When I was a kid i was always scared of the basement if I was running from downstairs up, But when I went downstairs I was fine. I always thought that there was someone chasing me up the stairs so i ran and never looked back. That went on for a long time. It relates to the book in a big way. The monster I always ran away from is in the same sence as the beast in Lord of the Flies. It is fear that makes you act in a certain a fear that you have trouble getting rid of. The big difference is that I have adults in my life and the boys are all left on there own.

This semester has been one of the most interesting english class that i have ever had. We went to the technology aspect and it was a success. I enjoyed doing wikispaces and blogger. Google docs and other sites helped me type my essay too. It was a good experience to use i will keep going back to these sites for help and to keep learning. There wasn't that many flaws about it either. The only one that i had a little difficulty was getting my blogger set up and getting it to mr.Ayer's blogger. As you can see i got that all sorted out. Making wikispaces were the best part of the semester. When we had a contest to see who had the best one it just made you want to work harder to get that and by working harder you learn a lot more about the book and about wikispaces itself. I hope that we will use a lot more of this technology in second semester; it really helps me out to do all of this new technology
