This curriculum unit includes tested and proven materials for teaching Brave New World to high school students. We have developed this unit to offer other teachers a sample plan that introduces students to dystopian literature, also referred to as anti-utopian literature.
You will notice that the sample time line suggests a six-week unit. This is the format we recommend the first time the novel is taught, but we have done it in a variety of other sequences. We hope that these materials will make the teacher’s job easier and more productive.
This brings us to one final comment: this unit is very flexible. We offer approaches based on firsthand experience, but we know that there are many other combinations that will work as well. We believe that all teachers adapt ideas to fit their own teaching styles, and this format, like those in all of our curriculum packets, is easily and successfully modified.
