Product Description
This is a very interesting article from Seed Magazine about why lifelike robots and CGIs make people uncomfortable. (Remember Angelina Jolie in Beowulf?) It talks about Freud, robots, and the creepiness factor. At what point does something become too close to real?
There is a guided reading worksheet with some Bloom's inspired application and evaluation questions. The very last question is about Mary Shelley's Frankenstein so if you're using it for something else--just delete that question!
Have fun!
