Take a minute to reflect
  • What do you think a Utopian society would be
    like?
  • Are all people free?
  • Do people have monkeys as butlers?
  • What jobs are there?
  • What are the rules and the laws?
  • What happens if people break the laws?
  • Would there be religion?
  • Who would rule the country?

The reality of UTOPIA
  • Could there ever be a perfect world?
  • What inhibits us from living in a perfect world?

9
Utopia and The Giver
  • There is a thin line between utopia and dystopia
    as we will study in Lois Lowrys, The Giver.
  • In this perfect world, citizens are restricted
    on clothing, jobs, spouse and children, therefore
    leaving personal choice out of the question.
  • Is there a price to pay in a seemingly perfect
    world?

10
Assignment
  • As you are viewing the power point, stop to
    answer the questions. The gatekeeper will make
    sure each team member equally contributes to the
    discussion.
  • Your team will then decide what components of
    your perfect world you would like to illustrate
    on your poster. After you complete the
    illustration, be prepared to present and explain
    your poster to the class. You will need to
    explain why you chose these elements of your
    perfect society. Each team member will
    participate in the presentation.
