BRAVE NEW WORLD CHAPTER 3 Student Handout and Teacher’s Discussion Guide

Chapter 3 of Brave New World is frustrating for kids to read and challenging to teach.

Huxley’s goal is to establish parallels from our society (pre-modern, time of Ford) and A.F. 632, the Brave New World. The parallels allow him to satirize sexual values, family, religion, history, and culture. Unfortunately, the back and forth among the scenes in the garden, elevator, girls’ locker room, and nursery, usually only succeed in confusing the reader. Rather than have Huxley’s satire, essential to understanding his message, completely lost, I created this handout to distribute along with students’ Chapter 3 reading assignment.

The student handout begins with a definition of satire then two quotes that encompass the gist of the chapter:

“Impulse arrested spills over, and the flood is feeling, the flood is passion….” and

"Think of water under pressure in a pipe…."

What follows are pages with excerpts categorized as the following satire targets: sexual values, family, religion, history/culture/government.

Clumping the excepts this way makes the chapter’s three main scenarios, Mustapha in the garden, the men in the elevator, and the women in the locker room, coherent and much easier to follow.

I include a detailed discussion, kind of a script, of how I comment on the excerpts, point out the satire, and compare the conversations to our society.

I’ve tried many activities to improve students’ comprehension and appreciation of this chapter, and this method has been quite successful.

I also have available in my store a chart for Chapter 3 that requires the kids to draw the parallels between Mustapha’s comments, the guys’, and the ladies’. These two activities pair well.

Thank you for your consideration of this resource. Lori
