Enjoy my lesson plan. I designed it to teach 9th grade students about utopia and dystopia by looking at The Once and Future King. We will deconstruct the idea of a utopia, or perfect world/society, by using textual evidence to complicate the idea of Camelot as a utopia. Students will discuss the effectiveness of Arthur’s Right-over-Might policy, what some of the consequences were for establishing this rule, and how the society was ultimately destroyed. Students will also write a character journal in which they write their character’s opinion of Arthur’s policy, using the text as a source. Students will also discuss author intent as well as relate utopian concepts to modern societies and ways of thinking. I put a lot of work into this lesson plan. It meets many NCSOS requirements for English I dealing with reading and responding to texts, as well as studying and making arguments based on textual evidence.
