In this unit, students analyze Ursula Le Guin's "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas" to evaluate its social, moral, and ethical positions. The story explores the idea of a utopian society where all of the world's burdens are placed on a single child, and prompts readers to reflect on whether they would be comfortable living in such a society.
