Animal Farm is a satire:
-in Animal Farm George Orwell made fun of the Russian government after the Russian Revolution and expressed some of his own opinions through it
-to show the cruelty of Russia government or to expose the Russian government's faults
-he used animals because ... well, YOU will have to tell me that after we read the novella.
If you're taking notes on paper . . .
Turn your notebook paper on its side.
Create three (3) circles that fill your paper.
At the top of the first circle, write "Fable."
At the top of the second circle, write "Allegory."
At the top of the third circle, write "Satire."

Animal Farm is a Juvenalian satire, meaning that the story is told with less humor and is generally more scornful.
Thanks to teacher Tracy Catlin for originally creating this Prezi.
If you're taking notes on your computer . . .

& two rows into your document.
In the first box, write "Fable."

So what do we get to do next, Mrs. Winter?
Read Animal Farm,
a novel by George Orwell
Let's discuss what kind of novel it is . . .
Like "The Tortoise and the Hare"
You’ve probably been learning lessons from animal stories for a while . . .
What lesson does this movie teach us?
Sometimes we need to set our worries aside
Good leaders care about their subjects
Good leaders recognize that we all play a key role towards the larger goal
We cannot live our lives in shame over past events.
Let's watch a video -- is it an allegory, fable, or both?
Does it have animals?
Yup!

What lesson does this story teach us?
Being in charge is hard work.
We should be happy with what we have.

There are some references and symbols here, but probably not enough to be considered an allegory.

It's probably more of fable.
How are these allegories?
Satire's little brother: Parody
The major differences between Satire and Parody:
(Adapted from Differencebetween.net)

- both have humor but different GOALS.

- Satire - social or political change; it depicts (shows) anger or frustration, and the humor makes that strong emotion bearable.
SATIRE = HUMOR + ANGER (SOCIAL/POLITICAL)

- Parody - just mocking, might anger or upset people, but it's really just for entertainment, not meant to influence society.
PARODY = HUMOR (ENTERTAINMENT)
Is Goodnight, Goon satire or parody?
Parody - an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect.
Here's some satire . . .
