Alternative facts

In one of our next lessons we will talk about “Newspeak” and “thoughtcrime” in Orwell’s 1984 (see also the assignment for chapter V). This video might provide us with some additional input for our discussion.

Please check out also the blogroll on the right bottom side of this blog. There you’ll find several links to interesting newspaper articles. The Washington Post article by Aaron Blake refers to the video and gives some additional insight. Soon, we’ll also talk about how to write a comment (see the respective page on this website: writing – comment) and your next homework will be to write and  publish a comment, e.g. on the above mentioned article and/or video.

It’s time for you to start publishing!!! 🙂
