Description

I created this lesson because the ending torture scenes in 1984 always leave my students confused and asking a lot of questions. As Winston is tortured by O'Brien, he exclaims that 'he had never loved [O'Brien] so deeply as in this moment"(252). Try explaining that scene to tenth graders! :)This lesson asks students to analyze the ending scene from a psychological lens by exploring the concept of Stockholm Syndrome. This interesting concept will help your students better understand what happens to Winston at the end of the novel. Plus, your students will be engaged during this lesson, since they will find Stockholm Syndrome very interesting to learn about. During class discussion, my students have so many thoughts to share and they are actually excited about the topic. This is why I love teaching this set of lessons.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCT…
This is a 2-3 hour close reading & writing activity that should be completed after reading book 3, chapter 2 of 1984. There are 3 lessons included in this purchase. The included slideshow walks students through each of the activities, making it easy to implement into any high school ELA classroom.

Students learn about the psychological phenomenon of Stockholm Syndrome by taking brief notes on a four minute video clip that explains the syndrome. Next, students read short excerpts that further explain the Stockholm Syndrome to further their understanding. After, students examine excerpts from 1984 and answer close reading questions where they are asked to make connections between the torture scenes in 1984 and Stockholm Syndrome. The close reading and questions prepare students for the third lesson which is a literary analysis paragraph. This writing assignment is structured to improve students' skills of embedding quotes and writing strong commentary. This is a great activity for your classroom if you are wanting your students to make real world connections to 1984.

WHAT IS INCLUDED…
