TEXT: "2BR02B" (pronounced "to be or naught to be") by Kurt Vonnegut
LEVEL: 7th-12th
COMMON CORE: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.2
INCLUDES: full story text, public domain audiobook, "To Be or Not to Be" soliloquy excerpt from Hamlet, plot chart arc organizer, plot analysis questions
GREAT SUPPLEMENTAL RESOURCE FOR: any dystopian novel like THE GIVER, HUNGER GAMES, DIVERGENT, UNWIND, etc.

In this futuristic dystopian short story, Mr. Wehling is going to be the happy father of 3 triplets. The problem with that is that due to population control this means 3 people must leave the earth. This five page short story is a perfect mini unit to discuss plot, the meaning of art, the complexities of assisted suicide, and dystopian ideal societies.
