Teaching and reading science fiction in college by Lahna F Diskin( )

3 editions published between 1975 and 1979 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation documents the different ways in which specialists approach science fiction. Descriptions of courses are presented for four universities, two four-year colleges, and one two-year community college. At all the schools, science fiction is a medium for social criticism. Otherwise the courses differ in content, format, and the methods used to teach them. A survey of the attitudes and values of students in regard to science fiction shows that its popularity as a course derives from students' interest in the themes which science fiction writers explore. Science fiction is a medium for self-exploration and self-discovery for most of the students. Three study guides on alienation and the deviant, artificial intelligence and automation, and the discovery of extraterrestrial life are contained in this dissertation. The study guides consist of objectives, reading schedules, commentaries on the readings, discussion questions, topics for papers, and simulation exercises. (Author/RB)

Guidelines on Teacher Preparation: The Sourcebook by Lahna F Diskin( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Students in the two-year English education program at Trenton State College are asked to develop sourcebooks that contain their original writings, as well as "found" pieces about teaching and learning. The sourcebooks encourage students' on-going exploration of their past school experiences, the reasons for their decision to become English teachers, and their anticipations for their future teaching careers. Varied and changing resources are provided to guide and stimulate the students. These resources, which include works on education, autobiographical works, and autobiographical poems, may be used by students either as models for their own writing or as stimuli for response. Students who are involved in practicums in junior and senior high schools are asked to include in their sourcebooks regular accounts of successes and failures with pupils. (This document includes a list of resources that have been provided to students.) (Gw)
