Great speeches today! If you didn’t read your speech today then we’ll hear you tomorrow.
Today in class we read the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. Here’s the text: Harrison Bergeron
Now, answer these two questions:
1) How does this short story connect thematically to Animal Farm?
2) The term “Orwellian” (as in based on George Orwell’s ideas) get thrown around modern day society a lot. Based on the themes of Animal Farm and the very Orwellian “Harrison Bergeron”, come up with your own definition of what “Orwellian” means.
(You probably got all this done in class.)
Post your answers in the comments section below, or write them up and give them to me in class tomorrow.
Also for tomorrow make sure you read chapter 6.
