Product Description
There are many commonalities between 1984 and Brave New World.

This product includes an introduction to Huxley's Brave New World.

There are three pages discussing the history of the novel, setting, concepts, and characters.

There is much information about the historical context of the novel and the events that inspired the author.

There is a brief list of fulfilled Huxley "prophecies."

Following is an article by Jhan Hockman which explores the various arguments that Huxley makes to promote individualism.

I have students read the introductory information and subsequent article and paraphrase each paragraph, a method that I find promotes more attentive reading.

I've included an activity which requires students to read my paraphrases of the Hockman article (totaling 12) and note similarities and differences between the two societies depicted in the novels then determine a theme that is common in both works.

I use a clear font and relevant graphics.

The activity has space for student responses.

Created using Word 2007, editable

I include a key with detailed responses; however, sometimes students surprise me with their own unique perspectives and observations about the novels and concepts.

Thank you for your consideration of this product.

Please have a look at my other Brave New World products and 1984 products, especially popular and well-received by students are the
---PowerPoint presentations, one compares BNW concepts to practices in our society and
---under the 1984 category, a presentation to help students navigate Goldstein's book, with accompanying graphic organizers and
---an introduction presentation for Orwell and 1984.

I have individual chapter activities for both novels available in my store.

I also have my 31 years worth of 1984 materials available in a bundle.
