In Chapter 4 of Brave New World, readers find examples of caste conditioning.
Readers recognize the distinctions among the castes.
Lenina displays the effectiveness of conditioning while on her date with Henry.
Many examples of elaborate country sports are mentioned.
Bernard Marx and Helmholtz Watson emerge as possible heroes opposing the oppressive society.
In this activity, students question:
---How are these men different from other men in the BNW?
---How are they similar to one another?
---How do both men represent a threat to the stability of the society?
This Brave New World activity begins with 6 vocabulary words from chapter 4 and the task of writing original sentences.
What follows is 12 questions about
---BNW conditioning, and
---comparisons to Winston Smith from 1984 (there are 2 questions which could be revised or deleted if your students have not read 1984).
I use clear font and allow space for student responses.
