Welcome to this WebQuest about Brave New World!
While reading Brave New World, you have become familiar with the unique government, class system, and identities of the citizens. In this lesson you will focus on how individual identity is impacted by the government's use of a caste or class system. You will also explore real life societies which practice the use of a class system - you may even be surprised at some examples!
Here are Essential Questions you are going to explore:
- How do the components of a caste or class system influence or diminish a person's identity?
- In what ways does government use classification to exert control over its citizens?
- How does sacrificing individual identity for the benefit of society as a whole manifest in a caste or class system?
