Product Description
Want to crash course secondary students on the concept of utopia/dystopia? Frontloading a novel unit and building background knowledge about the genre?

Use this lesson to give students important political and social context and more deeply understand…
• WHAT a dystopia is,
• WHY dystopian literature is written,
• WHEN the genre began, and
• HOW writers express their themes and messages to readers.

This lesson also places emphasis on REAL world attempts at utopias (and why they tend to flop), as well as how dystopian rulers control their people (such as censorship and persuasive techniques).

This 18-page/slide, EDITABLE download includes…
• A brief Teacher’s Guide
• PowerPoint slides: the lesson itself
• Guided notes for students (fill-in-the-blank)
• Guided notes answer key
• BONUS: The 15-minute video of ME teaching the lesson, so you get ideas of what you can discuss while teaching it yourself. (Or, you can assign the video lesson to students to just watch that, flipped classroom style.)

*IMPORTANT: My lesson was used to teach The Giver, BUT if you’re teaching a different novel, you ONLY need to revise the LAST slide, which is “Hints while reading the novel”.

NOTE: This product is INCLUDED in my full The Giver Novel Unit!
