Utopia: A place, state, or condition that is ideally perfect in respect of politics, laws, customs, and conditions.

Describe a utopian community
by bullet pointing your ideas in
your journal.
Think about education, housing,
entertainment, food, music,
population of people, values,
natural resources, building
design, technology, etc.
You have 3-5 min.
*
Now
take the bullet pointed list
and share it with the person sitting next to you.
2 min.
*
After
sharing your utopian ideas,
discuss how your utopias are similar
and/or different. 2 min.
*
Next
, develop a new list of bullet points from
your shared ideas. You are creating a utopia together, so you must agree. Each person should have the same number of ideas on the new list. 5 min.
Can one person make a difference?
Is a "perfect" society possible? Is it something we really want?
Could something intended for the greater good really be bad?
What is the importance of memories to an individual and to a society?
Next, imagine what would happen
if everyone in this classroom had to
agree on what the utopian
community would look like and how it
would operate. What obstacles
would likely come into play?
