Document Details


This guide highlights some of the most salient aspects of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World before you begin teaching. While it has some challenging content—overt sexuality, drug use, and suicide—teaching this text to your class will be rewarding for you and your students. Studying Brave New World will give them unique insight into social organization, free will, and important themes surrounding the roles of science, technology, and centralized government in civilization. 


Our eNotes Teaching Guides have been designed to help first-time and veteran teachers open up classic works of literature for their students. Each guide provides creative and practical approaches to teaching the text, as well as rich background information, key plot points, and recommended texts.

The main components of each guide include the following:

  • An overview of the text and its key components
  • Teaching approaches and discussion questions
  • A list of complementary texts

These Teaching Guides offer valuable context and promote meaningful discussions about novels, plays, poems, and stories that have captivated English Language Arts students for generations. Each guide is comprehensive and concise, thought-provoking and practical.
