Analyzing Animal Farm

March 8, 2018

The English 4 CT students have spent the last nine weeks working through the book Animal Farm by George Orwell.  This required a lot of background knowledge lessons on the Russian Revolution. Animal Farm is essentially an allegory for this historic event. The students have enjoyed reading about Napoleon, Snowball, Squealer, and the other animals that takeover Manor Farm and transform it into Animal Farm. It has given them a new understanding about Communism and also helped them to understand the Russian Revolution from different points of view.
