Our next unit began today, 3/14 and will end with brief, in-class presentations on Monday 3/20. The goal of the unit is to imagine ourselves as sci-fi writers/thinkers and to project the future of a currently existing system or technology.
You’ll choose a topic, educate yourself about it, and then imagine how it will look in the future. You’ll type up your findings and projections in a 1-page abstract which you will read to the class when we share our work on Monday 3/20.
Tuesday 3/14 (PI day): Introduce unit, pre-write and brainstorm. Chromebooks will be here: Research your topic..
Thurs 3/16, 10: Chromebooks will be here: Write your abstract.
Mon 3/20: Present your abstract to the class.
The project is worth up to 150 points. 75 for a well-written abstract, and 75 for presenting it on Monday 3/20.
