Product Description
Introduction to Dystopian Literature

This resource provides students with the frame of reference and context they need in order to understand the context of Dystopian novels and short stories. The materials will provide a great introduction or supplement to any Dystopian literature genre unit!

The resources include the following:

A modern and engaging Introduction to Dystopian Literature Google Slides Presentation (also uses humor);
Questions and Note-Taking Student Handout on the Dystopian Literature Slides Presentation;
Teacher’s Answer Key: Questions and Note-Taking Handout;

Links to the Full Text to 12 Teen and Tween Dystopian Short Stories.
The high-interest Introduction to Dystopian Literature Slides presentation includes 24 slides that outline the Dystopian literary genre, rich images, traits of Dystopian societies and the Dystopian protagonist, and links to popular young adult Dystopian film and book trailer clips for students to view as a frame of reference. Just play the video clips and view from the Google Slides Presentation!

Video clips include relevant film excerpts from Matched by Ally Condie, The Giver by Lois Lowry, The Eye of Minds by James Dashner, iRobot movie trailer, and Unwind by Neal Shusterman!

The featured video clips (inserted into the Google Slides from YouTube videos) will enhance the understanding of dystopian themes through relevant popular young adult book trailers and video clips from the movie adaptation of young adult Dystopian novels.
Students will have greater interest in learning more about Dystopian literature after viewing the video clips and some will want to add these titles to their own personal independent reading lists after viewing the videos!


Students use the Intro to Dystopian Literature question sheet to fill in notes and answer questions on the differences between a Utopian world and Dystopian, the types of control used for the oppression of society in Dystopian fiction, the common characteristics of Dystopian protagonists, and notes to stimulate a discussion as to the author’s purpose in writing a Dystopian work.

When teachers provide this information prior to reading, their students can then read a Dystopian novel or short story with a critical lens instead of being lost or confused due to the unique nature of a Dystopian work.

Interested in implementing a mini-unit on Dystopian short stories? This product includes a virtual library with links to 12 Dystopian stories designed for teens and tweens!

This product is a pdf file with Google share links to all materials. Directions are provided on how to access and share within Google Classroom, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and directions on how to download the materials in a compatible format for Microsoft Office.
