Mrs. Hill and Mrs. Benninger recently worked on a unit about Dystopian literature. The students participated in a “Break Out Box” activity facilitated by Mr. McKowen.
This activity is similar to break out rooms. Students had to find clues and collaborate to unlock the boxes. The objective was to have students understand Dystopian literature. They read The Giver, Anthem and Hunger Games in activities such as this understood the objective of the unit.
More about Dystopian literature:
Dystopia is a world in which everything is imperfect, and everything goes terribly wrong. Dystopian literature shows us a nightmarish image about what might happen to the world in the near future. Usually the main themes of dystopian works are rebellion, oppression, revolutions, wars, overpopulation, and disasters. On the other hand, utopia is a perfect world – exactly opposite of dystopia.
