Product Description
ARE WE LIVING IN A BRAVE NEW WORLD?

Often, the phrase, “It’s a brave new world” is pronounced or whispered in discussions about science, technology, and ethics. True, Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel, Brave New World, addresses the advancements in these fields, but the author also stabs at society’s approaches to education, employment, and consumerism. Human concerns, religion, family, and sex, are also subject to satirical speculation. When teaching Brave New World, or any dystopian novel, it’s important to compel students to draw comparisons between the novel’s society and our own so they recognize the author’s important message and warning.

Created in 2018

In this presentation, I’ve addressed the main practices of the Brave New World and focused on our society’s parallels.

There are 58 slides, blue background, large clear, white font, and relevant and engaging graphics.
