English 553: 20th Century U.S. Fiction (Science Fiction)
ENG553 is an upper-level course (theme varies by instructor). For this course, I had students read, listen to, and view a variety of sci-fi texts across the century (including works by: Orson Wells, Ridley Scott, William Gibson, Octavia Butler, and others). Students wrote two main papers for the course, kept a "sci-fi scrapbook," and completed a collaborative group project: the "sweded" presentation.

[BN: I am not a literature person by training, but more of a dilettante from the field of rhet/comp who geeks out over the genre.]
This assignment is an in-class presentation consisting of two parts:

A 2-page response to the selected text, in which you offer us a short synopsis and discuss what/how it contributes to the sci-fi genre.

A "Sweded" version of the chosen text. Essentially, you'll create a short, parodic version of your selection based on the available means of production at your disposal (suggested final products might include: an edited movie, a digital slideshow with voiceover, an old-timey radio show, a short comic book, a mini-album complete with album art and liner notes, or something in a similar vein).
