Welcome to Unit 4 Session 4
Welcome to Unit 4 Session 4. In this session, you’ll finish reading your science fiction book, discuss the book in your book discussion group, and start the process of creating a contemporary essay on your book. Here are a few essential questions we'll consider in this session:
-How does a critical lens stretch, compress, and focus a field of view?
-How might I widen the angle and narrow my focus for this writing? What sources should I investigate? What information should I collect?
-Why is it necessary for me to summarize and synthesize information from a variety of sources?
-How do I determine what information should be summarized?
-How do I determine what information should be combined for synthesis?
Students will be able to...
