Okay, today is a day for you to talk with your small group about your choice dystopias. It’s the LAST day for this. Focus on:
- Questions you have–what’s confusing, what’s resolved or not resolved, your opinions
- What elements of the dystopia pattern are met/not met by the end of the book and why?
- Since dystopia is social critique, you also have a job of deciding if the book offers possible solutions or warnings to current problems.
Then, I’m giving you an assignment. I’m going to ask you to do Still Life with a Book. This is individual work, NOT group work. It involves one photograph and one paragraph. You can see an example of each here. You can begin planning it today, and it will be due on March 3 (a Friday).
