Aldous Huxley's essay "Words and Behavior" provides students with a challenging argument about the nature of language, rhetoric, and power. Written against the background of World War II, Huxley argues that the way we use language can have dangerous and sometimes violent consequences. Because this is a challenging essay, I wrote these 25 questions to guide students through the reading, which includes allusions to Percy Shelley and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, including an excerpt from "Fears in Solitude." I included answer keys for everything.
This essay is a great informational text to pair with Brave New World, 1984, or Things Fall Apart. In fact, it's included in my Things Fall Apart Synthesis Bundle.
