1984: How Much Fact in Fiction?

Students compare and contrast the society in Orwell's 1984 with modern society. In this 1984 lesson, students research the historical climate in which Orwell wrote the novel. Students create a comparison chart of privacy issues in the novel versus today's society. Students research internet privacy issues, video surveillance, drug testing, police surveillance, and racial profiling and discuss their findings.
