Another Tommorrow: A Science Fiction Anthology/with Teacher's Guide.
Hollister, Bernard C.
Fourteen science fiction stories are collected and arranged under the themes, MarsAmerica, Progress, Machine, Society, and Weapons. These stories make statements about the present as well as the future and allow students to confront that future before it overtakes them. The purpose of the anthology is to prepare students for the different tomorrows that they might confront and to motivate them toward creative insights for probing our contemporary situation for social problems of the future. The teacher's guide contains an introduction to each story emphasizing its particular theme, for instance attitudes toward the state and dependence on machines, and provides questions for discussion among teachers and students and activities, such as writing science fiction. The guide also includes an annotated list of resources in science fiction, while the student anthology includes an annotated bibliography arranged according to the major themes of the anthology. (JH)
