International Ivy – Dystopian Short Story Writing
This course is for designed for students who love books like Hunger Games, The Giver, or Maze Runner. Dystopia is an imaginary world where society lives under the oppression of a government, belief or technology. Students will read a couple of dystopian short stories to spur discussions about common themes and story elements in dystopian fiction. Students work together to create their own perfect society, learning by discovery how difficult perfection is and why fictional utopias almost always become dystopias. Students work together to create their own dystopia and discuss lessons that could be learned from their imagined dystopia. Finally, students write their own dystopian short story.
