RESEARCH ENTRIES 1. Provide a link to a news article. Briefly summarize the news story and fully explain its connection to the chapter(s) read. Support this connection with a quote. 2. Create links to at least three advertisements that express values or commentary on life. Sports, car, fashion, and beer advertisements are usually good for this (think “Just Do It”). Write a post that discusses what our society values. 3. List several (more than two) government policies depicted in the novel that the characters seem to follow blindly. Provide a link to information on a current U.S. government policy that seems to go unquestioned. Briefly summarize the information on website, and explain how the two policies (book and website) are related? 4. Research information about the time period in which the book was written (Brave New World-1930’s, Fahrenheit 451-1950’s, A Clockwork Orange-1960’s, Feed- 2002). What were some changes in government, social conditions, technology, environment, entertainment, etc. that were happening at the time? Provide links to websites you find. Summarize this information. Based on this research, what do you believe the author’s view of the future was at the time the book was written? Support your points (cover more than one area) with evidence (quotes and/or examples) from the novel. 5. Relate some of the research you are doing in your paper to social changes. How can restrictions in the rights of teens or new social pressures parallel events in the book? As with the other research entries, you need to provide a link to a website, summarize the content of the site, and explain the connection you’re making.
