Essay Assignment - 1984 and Brave New World

In what way can 1984 and/or Brave New World be viewed as a warning to society? Outline your arguments first, supporting them from the text. Write concisely. Your final essay should be three (typed, double spaced) pages. Note: It is not necessary or even encouraged for you to conduct research. I prefer for you to use your own brain and your own words rather than another's. HOWEVER, if you do conduct research, PLEASE NOTE: You must properly document quoted material. Use PARENTHENTICAL CITATION and WORKS CITED. Failure to properly document quoted material WILL RESULT IN A ZERO. Remember, I'm more interested in YOUR THOUGHTS than other's.

YOUR ESSAY IS DUE IN FINAL FORM on the TUESDAY following our return from THanksgiving break. NO LATE WORK WILL BE ACCEPTED. Extra credit may be given for essays turned in early, provided those essays are in the correct form (see above). Turn in your outline with your work.
