About this course

In this course we will explore a collection of short stories that have been put together specifically to amaze, delight, and challenge students to think critically about the world around them.  Short stories offer an incredible opportunity to look at a snapshot of society, which will allow us to draw parallels to specific aspects of technology, psychology, and humanity in general.

Futurism (predicting the future based on current trends)

Theme Analysis (extrapolating meaning from text)

Written responses (short- and longform responses)

Research (post-reading research reports)

Oral Discussion
