Travel brochures are due at the beginning of class today.
Today we're moving forward by asking the EQ: How can I determine themes related to dystopia and Anthem in another text? And, how can I cite textual evidence to support my analysis of the text?
We'll be reviewing all characteristics of dystopian society and then analyzing related themes in two texts: "The Trees" (song) by Rush, and the film "2081," based on Vonnegut's short story "Harrison Bergeron." Students will identify dystopian characteristics in both texts, annotate, and complete a graphic organizer comparing and contrasting the different texts.
