Objective: I can cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of a dystopia by drawing inferences from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain (RL11-12.1). Agenda:
Entry Task: 5 min. Take a walk around the room and look at all of the characteristics of a dystopia from the posters you created yesterday. Talk with someone who is looking with you about which characteristics you are most intrigued by and why. Did yesterday’s article “Why Teens Find the End of the World So Appealing” resonate with you?
3 students to share out back at your seats; pick up a Chromebook on the way back--do not sign in yet
Follow along as the beginning of the Dystopia presentation is shared with you and how it is laid out.
Take notes in your notebook about the popular definition,
Log in and open your copy of the slideshow and copy the titles and authors of each story, and ideas about which you would most like to read, narrowing it down to one.
Once we have gone through the slideshow, you will select which story you want to read and begin reading it.
While reading, you should be looking for the Dystopian characteristics from the popular definition and two of the characteristics from the class.
