This assignment is a writing prompt that I have used for very advanced middle school students and high school government/ civics students. You can use this prompt as an introduction to a research paper, or as an assessment near the end of the year so that students can put all of these big ideas together. This would work great in a Government class, or a World Civilization or Western Civilization class. This also might be a great cross curricular assignment for a Language Arts/ Humanities class. I was inspired to create this after playing the video game Civilization. Tags... Utopia, Government, Economics, Writing Prompt, Dystopian, Thomas More, philosophy.
