Honors 11: “Brainwashing” and “We are the Dead”

Since it seems the sub did not give you your homework, we had to do double duty today and read Huxley’s chapter on “Brainwashing” and work on this chart of comparison. More will be done to complete it tomorrow and Thursday. Here’s a cool Orwell/Huxley infographic I also attached. Next, we read and annotated in small groups David Bowie’s “We are the Dead” lyrics from his 1974 album, Diamond Dogs, and here’s the song itself if you want to take a listen.

You may have a reading quiz this week.
