PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need to add non-fiction into a unit on The Giver? Want to pull in cross-curricular non-fiction to show utopias (or are they dystopias?) in our modern world?

Use this FREE 2-day lesson connecting literature and modern articles to assess CCSS RI.1 and RI.2 in your ELA classroom. Themed around the question “Are Utopias Really Possible?”, the articles and corresponding questions ask students to think critically about human attempts at social perfection and what causes a utopia to fail.

In this EDITABLE doc from my “Nonfiction about Lit” series, ask students to read all three articles OR assign students to articles (jigsaw-style) to differentiate your instruction.

This 3-page lesson includes:
• Clearly marked standards
• Context and directions
• Hyperlinks to 5 current, credible articles on past and present utopian communities in America
• Summary prompt AND 1 text-dependent question PER article
• 5 questions that ask students to identify patterns across the failed utopias
• 3 synthesis questions to draw conclusions and connect back to the novel
• An extra credit option
