This is an intro to the genre of science fiction and the novel The Chrysalids.
I used this as a starting lesson for the novel study unit. It gives students a sense of what they can look forward to when reading a science fiction and the novel itself. It also creates links to our current society and explains how sci-fi often act as a commentary on real societal issues.
The presentation ends with some anticipation questions to help students get started when they begin reading.
