This EDITABLE collection includes my original worksheets used along with the separately purchased novel, the audio-version of the novel and the movie in DVD format. There is a ton of information available on-line about the author and the film, which I've used as well, but cannot include here. My method of presenting the novel and film using these worksheets and formats is described for you on the cover page. My high school age reluctant readers were usually pretty responsive to this structure, once they got used to it. I kept my classes moving through the information at a steady pace, and working through the assignments together as a class, with no homework assigned. In this unit, we read parts of the novel while looking into Carl Sagan's work and philosophy. We also spent time looking into the current work being done on the search for extra-terrestrials and the work that NASA is doing to explore space. The film version of the novel is incorporated to help bring to life some of the concepts imagined by Sagan. Please feel free to modify my work to fit your needs, however, please do not share or sell my ideas. Questions, Comments and Ratings are welcome!
