Dystopian mini-unit

I have created a brief film studies worksheet which can be used with any dystopian films. I watched; Chaos Walking and The Island and completed a worksheet for each film. We had already spent a full term going over dystopian conventions in Noughts & Crosses so this was an add on unit. There is also a worksheet which guides them through creating their own Dystopian world.
