Dystopian fiction is a genre of fiction which explores "imperfect worlds". There are often elements of poverty, survival, and good vs. evil. In this unit, students will be placed into different reading groups where they will each read a dystopian novel. They will create their own reading schedule, they will hold discussions about the books, and will create one unified final project that will count as their final project for the year. This project will bring together elemetns of characterization, theme, figurative language, and setting and can be in any form that the groups this choose.
