Utopia or Dystopia

Let’s face it, you’ve got it pretty good. You’re sitting there with your iPhone with the world at your fingertips. You eat every day, you don’t have to wait in line for bread, and somehow you got to school–in your car or on the big yellow bus. The government doesn’t assign you a job, and it doesn’t tell you what you have to be.

We’ve looked at dystopian literature.

Mission: Apply your piece to one nation in the world, past or present. Convince us to vacation there. Show the features that align with The Hunger Games and your particular chosen piece. Make it presentation-worthy. It’ll be put on display.

If you succeed, you will be rewarded with extra bread. If you fail…learn to spell “Solzhenitsyn.” You’re going to the Gulag.
