EXPLORING FANTASY AND FUTURISTIC FICTION FINAL DRAFT

Students in this class will venture into the world of literature focusing on fantasy, science fiction, and futuristic fiction to complete projects in collaborative

groups. Using technology for research virtual visits, author-Skyping, and exploring the craft of writing, students will read, discuss, research, and create as

they complete their projects and present to parents and peers. What is it? Literature in the genres of fantasy and science fiction are closely related. Fantasies are stories

that involve beings and events that do not exist in real life. These works may start on a realistic bent but they soon evolve into tales that could never really happen. Science

fiction literature focuses on real or imagined developments in science or technology. All science fiction and fantasy writers face a common challenge. They try to present

worlds that are radically and intriguingly different from today's world. The basic themes of science fiction include time travel, space travel, marvelous inventions, or

discoveries, life in other worlds, and the invasion of Earth by beings from other planets.
