Honors 11: 1984 I.i-ii and “Politics and the English Language”

We began today watching Colbert’s interview with Frank Luntz to jump start the conversation about political language and effective communication in the modern world. We also discussed the power of language. We then shared our thoughts regarding Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language.”

Afterwards, you got these questions to begin to consider concepts introduced in I.i-ii of 1984. We will go over them tomorrow before our first discussion leaders for I.iii-iv.
