Your Task

Science Fiction Unit
Research - Lite

During these last weeks of school, students will be writing a mini-research paper. Students will be asked to read selected pieces that will answer one of the following three prompts:

●    Do you believe in aliens or extraterrestrial life?

●    Is human cloning ethical? OR Should we be able to clone humans without any regulations?

●    Which new/breaking technology will have the biggest impact in the future?

Learning Targets:

Synthesize information to write an essay.
Cite sources using NoodleBib.


Students will choose which question to explore. Using the sources that have been selected students will write an short essay answering one of the three questions. Students will be required to use two sources to support their answer. Students will use proper MLA rules - works cited page, internal citations, and format - to complete the paper.
