This complete novel package for Brave New World contains all of the following:
104 higher order thinking questions covering the entire range of the book (complete with detailed answers)
50 question test based on the above questions, with an answer key and an essay designed to assess student’s understanding of the point of Huxley’s predictive satire
Background notes on the author and novel
Notes on satire, dystopias, tragecomedies, etc.
Student guide on how to effectively read the novel
4 quizzes to use, as needed, in different parts of the book
These materials are all designed to assist students in getting the most out of a single reading of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. All questions place a special emphasis on higher order thinking, as well as College Board’s AP literature expectations in regards to making inferences, understanding irony, and in general a rather rigorous, college-level approach to literature. These materials can be used for Honors classes as well, for any teacher looking to give their students the kind of push that the new Common Core standards are aiming for.
I have been teaching for 16 years, including several years teaching English Honors IV, as well as creating my own very successful Advanced Placement Literature program from scratch nine years ago. I have a Masters in Creative Writing, and thought I would make some of my materials available for purchase.
If you end up using the materials, please leave feedback about your experience. My name is Adam Horowitz, and I'm a sixteen year educator. You can e-mail me with any questions at email@example.com.
All questions were written using the Harper Perennial Modern Classics paperback copy of Brave New World. They could easily be adapted to other versions, however, the accompanying page numbers would need some altering.
If you’re tired of students simply SparkNoting through literature, consider giving my materials a try.
