Product Description
This 20-page .pdf document serves as an interesting hook into the novel, The Chrysalids, by exploring what we have come to expect out of science fiction narratives. It provides students a way to access the material by connecting to popular culture science fiction movies.

Students brainstorm what are the common elements of some of the most famous science fiction stories. The teacher points out that while The Chrysalids is in fact science fiction, it does not contain such common elements as space, aliens or time travel.

From there, the novel is contextualized to where and when it was written and, specifically, how world events had an effect upon what Wyndham wrote.

This .pdf document includes the following
-Detailed 65-minute lesson plan. (With experience, I have found this lesson to take 90 minutes to properly delivered, allowing sufficient time for class discussion.) Including extension activities, this lesson can easily span over three class periods.

-Contextualization Notes for The Chrysalids (Teacher Notes)
-Twelve colour .pdf overhead transparencies / computer display.
-Textbook Sign Out/In Log
Activities included:
-Think/Pair/Share
