Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will define the literary terms utopia and dystopia.
Students will identify dystopian characteristics in literature (and possibly film).
Students will explain how dystopias criticize contemporary trends, societal norms, or political systems.
Students will learn how to plot ideas.
Students will learn to create an effective presentation.
Students will effectively write an analytic essay.
Having read 1984, I am aware of some which contain sensitive subject matter. Having taught similar novels in the past, I have experience teaching matters of a sensitive nature to students. As always, the expectation is for the student to handle themselves with a sense of maturity. The purpose here is to explore the nature of the dystopian society and its role in the human experience.
Primarily, reading will be done as homework so the student can come to class prepared for discussion.
A copy of 1984 (ISBN: 978-0-451-52493-5, or equivalent).
A letter grade combined with a written report.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Novels may include: violence, sexuality, language, drug use.
A copy of 1984 (ISBN: 978-0-451-52493-5, or equivalent). Other sources will vary, and will depend on individual student essays.
