Imagine That!: Science Fiction as a Learning Motivation
Ontell, Val
Community & Junior College Libraries, v12 n1 p57-70 2003
This article, based on a presentation made by the author at the 2003 California Library Association conference, provides examples of how librarians and teachers can use Science Fiction to provide catalysts for discussion in a variety of subjects; teach students how to question intelligently; and stimulate their imaginations, thus motivating them to learn. It covers some of the books, short stories, motion pictures, and television shows that can be used to stimulate student learning, and methods of ascertaining what resources are available.
