This printer-ready, black and white student workbook contains 35 pages of student assignments designed to teach a unit about stories of the future. Purchase of a workbook includes access to the original Google Document upon request.
Lesson plans are not included with this workbook.
In this workbook, students will explore five modules, including "Why Read Stories of the Future," "Elements of Science Fiction," "Inferred Meaning," and more. Modules includes pages for notes, brainstorming, and 1-2 writing assignments per module with rubrics.
The final module builds up to planning and writing an essay that answers the question, "Why do people write stories about the future?"
Our school does not assign homework. With that in mind, this workbook took my mixed grade level, high school class 9+ weeks to complete.
The workbook is designed for teachers to choose their own articles and resources. Recommended stories include:
Ray Bradbury's "The Veldt"
Ray Bradbury's "There Will Come Soft Rains"
Etgar Keret's "A."
Movies such as Home and V for Vendetta.
