What might we have in common today with that of 1984 or LOF? How have we learned from the past? Consider the political, historical, and cultural background, as well as any pertinent biographical information that may have influenced Orwell or Golding in the writing of this novel.

  • Choose a person, event, or issue from the 1930s, 40s, and/or early 50s* and research his/her/its impact on the world in which the author lived and on his writing, as well as on our world today.



    1. After you have chosen a topic to research (see below)---prepare a research proposal following the guidelines on pg.3 of this packet

    2. Research your topic* for relevant information and prepare a MLA page of sources consulted and at least 15 notecards

    3. Develop a repetend/unifying element that you will use to connect the various genres

    4. Begin working on your individual genre pieces—think OUTSIDE the box! (no pun intended)

    * See topic chart on next page.
