This project is a great way to end a unit on dystopia and dystopian fiction.
With this project, I wanted to do something that incorporated writing and the elements of writing we’d been talking and something visual that would add an extra dimension to the writing they were doing. I love infographics, so this project seemed like the perfect combination of both the visual that an infographic provides and the essential information that an essay provides.
The idea for the prizefight actually came while I was researching the purchase of a new cell phone. I was watching a segment on CNET called Prizefight when I thought what a great idea for a project. I tinkered around with what I wanted the students to do and what my expectations might be and ended up with what you see in this document.
