Transcript: Sci-FI by Tracy K. Smith Kelli S., Osiris L., Morgan W., Skylar W. Sci- Fi by Tracy K. Smith Sci- Fi poem Kelli S., Osiris L., Skyler W., Morgan W. Diction The diction used throughout this poem is very casual, almost like the author is having a conversation with someone. Diction Tone The tone is very sarcastic and seems to be making sun of what the future society could turn into. Tone "and yes, we'll live to be much older, thanks to popular consensus" Significance of Title Title Sci-Fi means science fiction, however the author is using it sarcastically. What the author is saying seems crazy, but this fiction could very well become reality and our future society. BNW BNW The poem speaks about how sex becomes meaningless, much like how it is in BNW. Everyone has sex with everyone and it is emotionaless. Secondly it relates in the way the past is blocked out and forgotten about. Both the poem and BNW acts the the past is bad and the only way to go is forward. Stanza 2 " History, with its hard spine & dog-eared corners, will be replaced with nuance," Stanzas We think this stanza is important because it mention history, as in how we live now, and how this way of living will eventually become out of date. Stanza 7 " The oldest among us will recognize that glow- but the word sun will have been reassigned." We think this stanza is important due to the fact it talks about how no one will die, and the first person to have lived through people dying will remeber how things used to be. Thesis Thesis Tracy K Smith uses diction, tone, and a casual format in "Sci-Fi" to communicate the futuristic ideas in her imagination. She writes about how time is always changing, equality is in the near future, and an unending life for all.

Transcript: Sci-Fi Novel By: Summer Andrews Lucinda "Luce" is who the story is centered around. She is attending Sword and Cross School because her boyfriend mysteriously died in a fire. While she's there, she meets a girl named Arraine, who shows her around and helps her fit in. Daniel is another student and Sword and Cross who despises Luce from the day she arrives. He avoids her at all costs. However, as time goes on Daniel begins to fall for Luce and in the midst of this, supernatural things begin to happen to the two of them. For instance, Luce soon realizes that Daniel is immortal because the love is "cursed". Cam is another student at Sword and Cross. From day one he tried his hardest to get Luce to go out with him. He gets more and more aggressive once Daniel comes into the picture, which seems to be more than Luce can handle. This story is set in Savannah, Georgia at Sword and Cross School. Sword and Cross is a school for juevenile deliquents who are finishing high school. In the beginning of the book, it starts out in the 1700's. It tells a story of a boy and girl leaving each other, Their names are Lucinda and Daniel. It then jumps to a girl named Luce saying goodbye to her family. She is on her way to a school named Sword and Cross. This is a school for young criminals, and Luce is here because her boyfriend mysteriously died in a fire which she was blamed for. Here she is forced to wear all black clothing with no contact with anybody outside of the school. Along the way, she is given a mentor named Arraine. She shows her around, and she meets some of her classmates. One that really stands out is Cam. He tries to woo Luce, but it just doesnt work, She fell for Daniel. Although he despises her, whenever they talk he slips up about what she "used to do". This makes her even more intrigued. While studying, a fire breaks out in the library. Luce and one of her classmates are stuck in there. As they try to escape, her classmate dies in the fire. This sparks a fight between Cam and Daniel when she is saved by Daniel and she wants nothing to do with Cam. As the battle begins, she learns that things weren't what they seemed to be. One of the fantastic details in this book is the fact that Daniel and Cam can fly. This is fantastic because in reality, nothing like this could happen. It becomes obvious these characters can fly in the resolution. Publication Year- 2009 Savannah,Georgia Author- Lauren Kate Title- Fallen (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr Element 2: Also in this book, a warning for man-kind would be to expect the unexpected. This is shown because if Luce wouldn't have been suspicious about Cam, she might have believed to good guy act he was trying to pull off. This occurs in the rising action. Setting Element 3: Element 1: Science Fiction Elements During the book, Luce learns that Daniel will live forever, as Luce lives, dies and is reborn. The book is grounded in science because it deals with immortality. This is found in the climax. Element 4: Plot (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr Another fantastic detail is the super-human strength the librarian, Miss Sophia, has when she carries Luce and another classmate to a hidden room for "safety" while Cam and Daniel battle it out for Luce. This can also be found in the climax. (cc) photo by jimmyharris on Flickr Main Characters Basic Information
