This is the most creative lesson I've seen in a long time. It demonstrates what we try to achieve in literacy instruction, but often fail at: an authentic application of critical thinking, viewing, reading, writing, listening, & speaking to a content topic or area. Well done!

I am teaching grade 11 English for the first time and I just wanted to say that I have used this lesson plan as well as the matrix one/general dystopia lesson plan. They have been fantastic, and I have been able to fit them in with the work that I was already doing. This one in particular is something that I hadn't even though of, and is completely relevant to today.
Thanks for the work, and I look forward to seeing other lessons for use and inspiration in the future.
