This assignment has several options, but the point is for students to consider the changes they are willing to make in order to make the world a better place. The story I used with this assignment was Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, but any Utopian/Dystopian story would work. Or if you're just talking about advances in science or political endeavors to make a more perfect world.
Option 1 for the assignment is to print the pages with the "cards" and have students tape or glue the cut-outs in one of three categories. The point is that students must get to a certain point value in order to make their new world viable (I have it set to 150 points). Then students add photos (I used magazines) and reasoning for some of their choices. Make it more rigorous or less.
Another option is to make it a websearch using the included Google Doc version. Students still categorize into three sections, but now they need images to represent each category (you might want to eliminate the "casual sex" option here).
I have also included a link to the Lucidchart version of the assignment. If you have the paid version of this program at your school (it's just like Inspiration), students can make their assignment into a graphic organizer of sorts. Add photos and text.
I also allowed students to come up with their own ideas, but I limited them to two of their own with total points of 10 or less each.
Included are instructions and 43 cards worth between 2 and 10 points. You can add, delete, or alter all you want, but it's set up pretty nicely as an old-school poster or new-fangled Chromebook assignment. Group work. Pre or post reading. Creativity. Fun for the bulletin board.
