Mrs. Leid - Science Fiction

Course Description:

Science fiction and fantasy are rich, dynamic literary genres which deserve our attention.  These genres may transport readers to planets light-years away or deep inside the caves of a far-distant past.  Whether extrapolating science into futuristic technology or conjuring new forms of magic, these genres imagine what might have been or what might be, opening the door to any possibility.  In this course, along with expanding the imaginations of students, we will examine novels, short stories, and films.  During this process, we will discuss plot, theme, setting, description and point of view, all elements which make sci-fi/fantasy engaging literature.
