PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This research project on contemporary utopian communities will help students understand the difficulties inherent in attempting to create an ideal society. Students will research the beliefs, goals, and challenges of a community pursuing an idealized lifestyle. After reflecting on the challenges of building such a community, along with the advantages and disadvantages to living in such a community, students will be asked to discuss whether the ideals being pursued are suitable for the majority of people in society at large.

This project is an excellent way to help students develop their research skills and also makes a good anticipatory activity to complete before beginning a unit on dystopian literature.

Objectives:
Students will conduct research independently, consider multiple points of view before arriving at a conclusion, evaluate the credibility of sources, and synthesize information.

Materials Included:
→ Anticipatory Activity: What would an ideal society look like?
→ Slideshow Introduction to Contemporary Utopian Societies
* The slideshow includes links to YouTube videos.
→ Student Packet: Researching and Outlining Your Essay
