6th JanuaryDystopian Literature
We read the start of 1984, then half the class read the start of Brave New World, and the other half the start of Fahrenheit 451. We discussed the questions. It would be an idea to read these once again during the week.
We then did the debate questions; different groups researched the topics and reported what the had found.
