Product Description
This activating thinking handout can be used with any novel that relates to a dystopia or even a tragic governmental situation. I have used it with Fahrenheit 451 and Night. Students often wonder why or how dictators or governments seize control over people, which prompts a discussion on "herd mentality" or following the crowd. There are several psychology articles and experiments that can go along with this handout to get students discussing this piece of human nature.

There are four discussion questions that allow for a 2-3 sentence response. There is also a question in the middle that can be done with a yes or no.
