Mediateacher.net has the inside scoop: Through the American presidential election and its aftermath, we are currently living in a nationwide performance piece that is the seventh, unreleased episode of the newest season of Black Mirror (being followed by a binge-watching worldwide viewership). After such standout episodes as Nosedive, Shut Up and Dance, and Hated in the Nation, the innovative British series created by Charlie Brooker has upped the ante substantially by involving the general public in a surreal creation that lives up to the promise of a Twilight Zone for the digital age. And our English teachers should have fun with some cross-curricular doses of Vonnegut or Orwell.
