Title: Fantasy and Science Fiction


1
Fantasy and Science Fiction
  • These genres spring from folklore but differ
    in that they were not handed down by word of
    mouth over time but rather written by an
    individual author.

2
The two defined
  • True Science Fiction explores scientific
    possibilities asksIf this, then what?
  • Fantasy suspends scientific explanations and
    natural laws contains some elements not found in
    the natural world

3
How they differ...
  • Both are set in worlds not like our present
    reality but science fiction settings are created
    based on scientific principles in other words,
    they could become reality based on the knowledge
    we have and how our technology advances

4
This genres role in our students lives...
  • Opens the doors to the worlds of imagination
  • Covers important aspects of life likethe
    relativity of time, size and space, good versus
    evil, self integrity, etc.

Types of Fantasy
  • Animal Fantasy (Charlottes Web)
  • Miniature Worlds (elves, trolls)
  • Time Slips, Unreal Worlds and Magic (Harry
    Potter)
  • Literary Lore (Stinky Cheese Man P Ella
    Enchanted I)
  • Quest Tales (The Lord of the Ring The Lion the
    Witch and the Wardrobe)

Types of Science Fiction
  • Mind Control (The Giver)
  • Life in the Future
  • Survival (The City of Ember, Among the Hidden)

7
Using these genres in the classroom...
  • Start the children out with the wonderful fantasy
    picture books and this will set the stage for
    them moving more naturally, into the longer, more
    complex novels.
  • Share the various books through read aloud,
    storytelling, readers theater, literature
    circles, etc. to expand their interests.
  • Some may never experience these genres if
    knowledgeable teachers do not expose them to them

Group Assignment
  • Peruse the books on your table. Using the
    booklist at the end of your chapter, find out
    what category the book would fall under and be
    ready to share what the book is about by reading
    the back cover or inside jacket of the book!
  • Be sure to interject any possible ideas for use
    in the classroom!
