Transcript of Graduation Presentation

When was the last time you read a book?
“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.” ~Confucius
Science Fiction in School Classes and Studies
By: Alexander Mayo
Ms. Justice English IV Honor
Science fiction can equally provide the same ideas as classical literature currently studied in schools, while being more easily understood and enjoyable to students. The science fiction genre also provides many of the same moral and ethical experiences as classical literature and should be taught in place of or alongside classical literature.
Why I Chose My Research Topic
Personal affinity for reading
Makes you smarter
Can be enjoyable
Not much science fiction read in schools
Provides life lessons just like classical literature
English class shouldn't always be about hunting for literature terms and figurative language.
Description of Research
Ender's Game vs The Illiad
Ender's Shadow vs Night
War Atrocities
Ender's Shadow vs Much Ado About Nothing
Ender's Game vs A Tale Tell Heart
Previous actions haunting the main characters
Ender's Game vs The Lorax
When your given lemons, make lemonade.

Why science fiction should be read over or along side classical literature
How both genres are similar and different
What the stylistic differences were among the books chosen for study.
Research Paper Reflection
