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.

Do 5 & 6 on page 3 of the magazine. See slide 13 of the Powerpoint, which we looked at in the lesson. Do the same for one or both of the other texts.
