    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...

    -Read and comprehend the final quarter of selected science fiction novel. 

    -Use a critical lens to analyze literary work(s).

    -Evaluate sources and information based on credibility, relevance, and appropriateness relative to critical lens and science fiction novel

    -Craft an introductory section that previews the characteristics of a critical lens and the essential elements of science fiction novel.

    -Develop claim(s) and counterclaims that illustrate the relationship(s) between a critical lens and science fiction novel

    -Synthesize the most relevant evidence of a critical lens and literary work(s), pointing out the strengths and limitations of the claim(s) and counterclaims in a manner that anticipates the audience's knowledge level, concerns, values, and possible biases.

    -Craft a concluding section that articulates the implications or significance of the analysis.
