If you are studying the science fiction genre, then these ten mini lessons will come in handy! It includes the following lessons: introducing science fiction, detailed descriptions, scientific advancements, suspending disbelief, quotable quotes, symbolic settings, society as the antagonist, and themes.

I used this with my students while reading The Giver. Great to be able to introduce Sci Fi

I am using the mini-lessons for a guided reading unit where kids are all reading different sci-fi books. A good way to start class and draw connections from each of their books to the elements of science fiction.
