Animal Farm Teaching Unit
Excerpt From this Document
- Orwell is interested in how language is perverted to manipulate and control apopulation. Point out at least three examples of when this change in the meaning of words occurs in Animal Farm.
- Tyrants will sometimes use one or more of the following techniques to manipulate their citizens: scapegoating, the big lie, rewriting history. State when or how these techniques were used by Napoleon and if possible relate them to other historical situations with which you are familiar.
- Trace the political allegory in this book by listing the comment or events in the book and then relating each to a comment or incident in Russian history.
- One of the biggest ironies in this book is the way in which Old Major’s dream becomes prophetic. Reread that speech in Chapter One and identify which things come to pass.
- Discuss the role of the narrator in this book and comment on how the narrator is the cause of the irony.
- Fables usually end with a moral, a lesson to be learned. Write a moral for this story.
- At times, this is a sad story because it is about dreams—dreams born and dreams dashed. Point out appropriate passages from the book that demonstrate how Animal Farm treats dreams.
