This project is for use with a dystopian novel/literature unit. It asks students to create a dystopia of their own. Ultimately, they create four end-products: encyclopedia entry, creative story, promo/commercial, and presentation.
Students should have a good understanding of dystopias before assigning this project. It works well in conjunction with both literature and movies, such as The Hunger Games, Divergent, Fahrenheit 451, The Truman Show, etc.
This project covers multiple English Language Arts standards, ranging from research skills, technology skills, presentation skills, writing skills, time management skills, and collaboration.
A simplified rubric is included for quick and easy grading of the four project pieces.
