So this is something that I have been working on for a while and am so excited to use this coming year! It is a unit on George Orwell's 1984 and it includes the following and more!
I try to include a format that for each week such as Mondays is normally a discussion, or activity, Tuesdays is novel study, Wednesdays is Informational Text, Thursdays is poetry and Fridays is writing.
1. A unit calendar (set to the 2015-2016 school year which can easily be adapted) Feel free to go fast or slower, it is entirely up to you :)
The calendar includes which sources to use, however, these are not actual lesson plans, if you have any questions on how I plan to do an activity, let me know and I would love to help out!
“The Lost Generation”
“The Unknown Citizen”
“An Insight into Newspeak”
“Politics and the English Language”
1984 Introduction and Background
Marxism and Formalism in 1984 (Please note: the notes on these two sections have been adapted from the prestwick multiple critical perspectives- which is a great resource to have)
I'll be updating this later on to add some vocabulary, questions, and extra reading material that you can use whenever you'd like!
