Item description

Support the development of close reading skills with this worksheet composed of challenging questions designed to help high school students analyze George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984. Featuring a brief passage about the threat proles could theoretically pose to the Party from Book 1, chapter 7, this resource saves teachers valuable time at home without sacrificing academic rigor in the classroom. An answer key is provided. Materials are delivered as printable Word Documents and PDFs. By engaging with this resource, students will:

  • Identify what the text says both explicitly and implicitly
  • Articulate why the proles could pose a formidable threat to the Party
  • Articulate why the Brotherhood is comparatively and profoundly less powerful than the proles could be
  • Paraphrase what the narrator means by “[r]ebellion meant a look in the eyes, an inflexion of the voice, at the most, an occasional whispered word.”
  • Analyze the author’s use of simile
  • Analyze the author’s craft to discern and articulate the author’s intent
  • Apply knowledge of aposiopesis to the text
  • Analyze the symbolic significance of reverberating bells and inferring why the author made reference to them in context
  • Analyze an excerpt to discern and articulate examples of situational irony
  • Write with clarity and precision
