So often the media refer to Brave New World in discussions about science and the advancement of technology.
Students should make connections between the concepts of the novel and the actual progress in our own society.
I have created a 57-slide presentation of the concepts presented in
Huxley’s Brave New World.
Each idea is introduced with an excerpt from the novel.
The following slide reveals a current article relevant to the topic.
Next is a collection of headlines emphasizing the prevalence of the practice or situation in our society.
The fourth slide in the group consists of pop information about the topic shown as tabloids, cartoons, graphs, quotes, etc.
The 14 topics cover:
--maintenance of youth
The pop info includes:
I conclude the information with a section entitled “Why Care?” which encourages students to recognize everyday situations similar to those discussed and a call to action to work toward preventing the evolution of such a dystopic society.
Graphics are vibrant and interesting.
Font is clear.
Sources are listed.
I use this as an introduction to the novel; however, it could be used at point throughout the discussion or in segments.
