TED-Ed Lesson Focuses on the Definition of the Word ‘Orwellian’

By Maryann Yin 

The TED-Ed team has crafted a lesson to explain “what ‘orwellian’ really means.” The animated video embedded above features an examination of the origins behind this adjective.

Noah Tavlin served as the educator for this lesson. Over at the TED-Ed website, viewers can access a quiz, a discussion board, and more resources.

In the past, TED-Ed has crafted lessons on a Walt Whitman poem, the hero’s journey, and the oxford comma. What’s your favorite George Orwell novel?
