Society Exposed in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World

- Society Exposed in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World One may think that the society in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World is a gross representation of the future, but perhaps our society isn’t that much different. In his foreword to the novel Brave New World, Aldous Huxley envisioned this statement when he wrote: "To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda...." Thus, through hypnopaedic teaching (brainwashing), mandatory attendance to community gatherings, and the use of drugs to control emotions, Huxley bitterly satirized the society in which we live....   [tags: Aldous Huxley Brave New World]

My Holistic Approach to Teaching Reading

- My methodology of teaching reading would be the Holistic approach. This approach includes whole language and look & say. I like that the emphasis is placed on teaching reading, writing, listening, and oral language. Emphasizing these skills gets students to maximize their comprehension of text, identify relevant and non-relevant information, and tolerate less than word-by-word comprehension. In the classroom I would place more emphasis on learning than on teaching so by taking the whole language approach, the assessment is continuous and takes many forms: I would collect daily performance samples or work; observe and record children’s behavior; audio and videotape them in different situat...   [tags: whole language, Look & Say]

This simple but profound quote perfectly explains the satire of consumerism in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World (BNW).
