The two novels Animal Farm and 1984 are both taught and studied in my school at different stages, Animal Farm is taught in M3 (Year 9) and 1984 is taught over D1 (Year 12). By selecting two works by the same author, there is no issue of one of the works not being acclaimed or recognized. In terms of Chall’s Stages of Literacy Development, Animal Farm would be taught to students between Stages 3 and 4 and 1984 would be taught to students between Stages 4 and 5. The M3’s are taught Animal Farm because of the speeches that are made by the characters, relating these to advertising in the media and looking at the themes of propaganda and allegory. *add why D1’s study 1984*

I would recommend, “The Pact: Three young men make a promise and fulfill a dream” to eleventh grade students for several reasons. First factor, throughout this whole novel it gives you a wakeup call. For example, life in college is not that easy as you think, they got in to a lot of trouble, and throughout all that they were given a second chance in life. Second factor, Depicts transition from high school to college. They knew college is different from high school because of their own experience. They struggled throughout college, they financially couldn’t pay their books and other stuff they need to fro their classes. Then, this novel teaches you life lessons. Throughout this novel you will see how hard they had it and they still chased
Animal Farm by George Orwell which is an allegory of the Russian Revolution and the film adaptation of George Orwell’s novel 1984, which is set in a futuristic dystopian society, directed by Michael Radford uses Symbolism, foreshadowing and irony to convey the central ideas of power, politics, control, fear and they both also portray the dangers of totalitarianism. 1984 follows one main character (Winston) which shows how the society is being controlled whereas Animal Farm does not follow one character specifically. Though there are differences, Animal Farm and 1984 use the language techniques of symbolism, foreshadowing and irony in very similar ways.
Although it would be interesting to see the teachers experience for books, I agree that it would be more effective to let students pick a book for the class to read for a variety of reasons. For example, when I was in 7th grade, most of the student didn’t like the books we read. If students pick the books, they’re most likely to like the book and be more focused and excited to read the book. This helps with their vocabulary and makes them get better at reading. If students aren’t even paying attention to the book, how will they know what’s going on and improve their reading skills? Overall, this is only one reason that students should pick the book.
The School Library System chose 16 titles for elementary (gr. 3-6) and 16 titles for secondary (gr. 7-12) students, which included graphic novels, non-fiction, mystery,
The key to a good book is one that captures the reader’s attention and sustains it. A book that the reader can relate to and learn something from can be an extremely valuable learning resource. When determining what books should be included in a curriculum, two very important factors are that the story is relatable for students and is able to incorporate other historical, life, or religious lessons within the study of the novel. Sue Monk Kidd’s The Secret Life of Bees should be kept in the Honors English 10 curriculum at Magnificat High School.
I would like to ask you all, “What is the best way to portray a message?”. How can we word an idea so that it’s importance is understood and it stays ingrained in people’s minds? Today I would like to analyze how two different literary works go about delivering their similar messages. Those two works being Brave New World and Animal Farm. Having read Brave New World in class, I’m assuming we are all familiar with it. Some of you may not however, be familiar with Animal Farm, I would like to open up with a summary of the novel. The story takes place almost entirely on the Manor Farm. After being inspired by the dying message of a pig named Old Major, the animals of the farm start to distrust the rules they know. They lead a rebellion and overthrow the farm’s original owner, Mr. Jones. With their new leaders Napoleon and Snowball, the animals rename the farm “Animal Farm” and create their own set of rules called “Animalism”. Things do not end up well for the animals though, for soon corruption sets in. Snowball is branded a traitor and removed from the manor, the pigs form a controlling authoritative government, the original principles of animalism are constantly changed to meet the government’s needs, and the non-pig animals are forced to deal with terrible living conditions and nonstop hard labor. By the end of the novel, the pigs have grown so corrupt, that they become basically unrecognizable from the humans which they claimed to have hated so much. Both Animal Farm and
The book, I chose for my Book Talk #4 is The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey. It is the second book of the trilogy of the 5th Wave Book series. This book has a Lexile level of HL640L, the grade interest is ninth to twelfth, and the age range extends from 14 to 18 years.The Infinite Sea is a Science Fiction book, but it has hints of horror in the trope of the story.
Books are a great tool to learn new things and escape into another world. As a teacher using books is a great way to teach children different lessons about life. In the future I think excellent books to incorporate in my class would be Katherine Paterson’s book, Bridge to Terabithia, and Natalie Babbitt’s book, Tuck Everlasting. Both of these books are of a middle childhood reading level, perfect for the grades I want to teach. Both Bridge to Terabithia and Tuck Everlasting are good choice to teach in a classroom because they teach lessons and have aspects that children can learn from.
This is wrong. Just because something is famous it does not mean it is appropriate for a sophomore class. Things change, just because a story was famous a few years ago it does not mean it is famous now. While in school students should be given books that are interesting and make them like to read, so they begin to love reading to therefore improve their vocab in the long run.
When we talk about books we know for sure that all of them try to teach us something, even the worst book also try for the same thing. However, in order to educate Pre- AP students effectively we can only choose five books because we want them to know what they need to know. Luckily, I have to read two books in my summer. One of them is “My Antonia” and another one is “The color purple”. Both of them are good, but the one should be included in our five books is My Antonia. My Antonia is the book that will be able to teach our student from literature to life.
Big hallways, lots of people, and knowing where all the classes are. “I didn't know high school was going to be this tough and frightening”. If I were to give advice to upcoming eighth graders, I would tell them behavior requirements are a priority, along with academic, and attendance requirements.
The book that the class of 2021 should read is The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis. A Catholics novel written during World War 2 in England, this book tells the story of how a demon tempts a human to go to hell. Moreover, from a human’s perspective the novel show how temptations have affected him and the people that he holds dear to his heart. Since many temptations can harm the character both physically and physiologically we must be able to rely on other to helps us if necessary. Furthermore, the people we can rely are found in communities, which can be anything you want it to be. A group of people who have the same interests as you or a similar place of worship. In addition to people who just make you happy and may be even help you become
1984 and Animal farm are acutely similar books. They both revolve around a dictatorship government. There are two main dictators in these stories, Big Brother and Napoleon. The pigs are aggressive and big brother is always watching what the people do. In these novels the leaders start out with using the ruling to use it for good but then focus on corruption of power that Napoleon and Big Brother use it for the worse and not the good. 1984 and Animal farm the totalitarian governments used dehumanizing tactics like using television to hypnotize the animals, take away rights and using fear to show the people and animals that the government has the power.
Animal Farm & 1984 In both 1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell there are many similarities and differences. In both the three main topics are control, totalitarianism, and rebellion. The governing powers in each society of both novels use totalitarianism as tools to put an end to rebelion to ensure their reign of the social authority for future years to come.
George Orwell, a very intelligent man who lived during the 20th century, wrote a series of novels manipulating totalitarian government systems. Two of these being 1984 and Animal Farm, which both focus on leaders in full control and what could happen as well as what did happen. Due to his fear of the Soviet Myth, Orwell utilizes this fear as a centerpiece for both novels. Being published in the 1940s,both of these books contain information much like real life events going on in that particular moment in time. Orwell uses propoganda in both novels to not only help the leaders contain all of their power, but also suppress the peasantry’s ability to learn.
