This simple, no prep lesson is great for a "sub day" or it could also be used as a nice intro to Dystopian literature. Students will read a non-fiction article, and the short story "Harrison Bergeron". Multiple writing activities, critical thinking questions, and creative assignments are included. The nonfiction piece is a high-interest article which pushes students to think differently about technology that they use on a daily basis.
