We’d love to live in a perfect world, but it’s hard to attain. In complete sentences, share two things you would long for in your perfect world. Then, add a dystopian tint: how might those items turn your perfect world into a topsy-turvy reality? Be sure to use strong words and complete sentences. Example:  Peace on earth seems like such a simple thing to desire. How could we not work toward this and a lack of hunger in the world? But, working to maintain peace could mean an incredibly intense military designed to physically keep the peace. Ending hunger across the globe could mean rationing food and requiring all people to eat bugs and food pellets.

Be sure you tell me what you want, what you really, really want: When you’re persuading someone, think about what parts of speech you use most (adjectives, verbs). Write a persuasive statement about one of these three topics: picking your own book to read for a book club reading a class novel picking your own groups for novel discussions Finally, list your three strongest words.  Example:  1. I’d really like to read “Uglies” by Scott Westerfeld as part of a book club group. It’s a lengthy dystopian novel about how teens in society are required to become pretty—through surgery. This would be an awesome book to discuss and dissect in a club reading activity.  My best words are: lengthy, surgery, and dissect.
