Unit 3:


Why do writers create dystopias in literature?
~ 30 days

In this unit, students will examine how a writer uses rhetoric to create dystopian literature. With the help of structured reading circles, students will use discourse to explore the complexity of writer's purpose in literature. They will practice honing argumentation skills in their own writing, and by the end of the unit, be able to employ the rhetorical devices observed in their composition of a Writing from Sources essay.
