Product Description
There are many commonalities between 1984 and Brave New World. This activity has students read a scholarly journal article, determine the elements of dystopian literature, and compare these seminal novels.

This product includes an introduction to Huxley's Brave New World and to Orwell's 1984.

I use this activity after students have completed 1984 and before they've begun Brave New World.

There are three pages discussing the history of Brave New World, 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.

There is a three-page summary of 1984.

I use a clear font and relevant graphics.

The activity has space for student responses.


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

Thank you for your consideration of this resource.
