A Few Additional Notes
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. The first assignment is to inform. Students will write a diary entry about the real events in one day of their lives. They will model this entry after the diary entry of the main character, Winston Smith. The second writing assignment is to persuade. Students will write from the point of view of Winston Smith and try to convince the proles to rebel. The third writing assignment is to express a personal opinion. Students will write a letter to George Orwell telling him how they think the world today is doing in relation to the themes in 1984.
These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adapted for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that many veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be much more thorough and more helpful than other materials they have used.
