This PowerPoint helps to break down the most difficult chapter in George Orwell's 1984: Part II, Ch. 9, where Winston works his way through the "War is Peace" and "Ignorance is Strength" chapters of Goldstein's book. This chapter is vital to a full understanding of Orwell's novel, yet students find it tempting not to engage fully with the text. This PowerPoint remedies that. It carefully breaks down the major points presented in the chapter, helping students to understand how Orwell develops his argument. Finally, to demonstrate understanding, there is an included writing assessment that asks students to select one of the major ideas presented and to summarize it in writing.
