Visions of the Future


The Jetsons, Hanna-Barbera

Welcome to Visions of the Future, an elective course for seniors! During this semester, we will focus on dystopian literature, or fiction that creates a world in opposition of utopian ideals. We will analyze the construction and content of these texts through classroom discussion, creative projects, academic papers, and much more.

We will begin the semester with Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, and then we’ll move on to Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One. We will also do some reading in literature circles. In addition to the texts, we will also watch the film, Children of Men.

Be sure to keep an eye on our Google Classroom page to stay on track with homework assignments!
