The Status of Science Fiction Anthologies and Their Applicability to Teaching.
Reynolds, William D.
This paper suggests that now that science fiction has joined the educational establishment there is good reason to examine the uses of science fiction. It is further argued that if English teachers consider science fiction as a means rather than as an end, the teaching of science fiction will be improved and so will the more important tasks of teaching reading and writing. In conjunction with this philosophy, several science fiction anthologies are analyzed for their content and applicability to the task of teaching English, especially in the area of basic skills. (RB)
