Analyzing Sci-Fi!

This weekend's blog will be tied to our viewing of the late-90s science fiction/horror film The Faculty. This film serves as an excellent bridge between Dracula, Sontag's "The Imagination of Disaster", and this weekend's reading, Linda Seger's "Creating the Myth." This will also be a chance to practice the kind of film analysis you may be doing in your Class Presentation and/or Essay #3.

First, we'll be viewing the film in class today and Friday, so take good notes! For your post, begin by summarizing the film, as usual. Then choose to answer either Question 4 after Sontag's article or Question 4 after Seger's about The Faculty. Be sure to answer each part of the question! The post will be due Sunday before midnight, also as usual.

In the meantime, continue revising your Synthesis Essay for Friday. Do not forget to bring your revised draft in a folder with your peer reviews and rough draft!

Questions? Quibbles? Controversies?
