Students have started practicing how to write an expository essay on the dystopian stories. Next week, they will read Harrison Bergeron. After CWW, they will write their expository essay on their book club choice. The thesis statement should include four things: author, the title of the book, theme, and the dystopian characteristics that the author used to reveal the theme. Here is a scaffold for the essay and here is a sample paragraph.
