Teaching Science Fiction, by James Gunn | education | Scoop.it

Sci Fi legend and university professor James Gunn offers insights on teaching science fiction. The kinds of subjects that can be taught through SF involve social and physical sciences, history, ideas, futurology, religion, morality, ecology, reading skills, and many others. Gun's special project (which I have assisted) is the Center for Science Fiction at the University of Kansas... and especially the AboutSF Project. http://www.aboutsf.com/ About SF offers a database of resources for teachers seeking to use Science Fiction in the classroom. It also links to the new Speculation Speaker's Bureau which connects corporations, agencies and even local schools and libraries to either local or nationally known speakers on topics ranging from technology to literature to fantasy to films to the Shape of Things to Come!
