By Petrea Mitchell| June 9, 2013 | Comments Off on PR: Worldcon adds teaching workshop

LoneStarCon 3, the 71st World Science Fiction Convention (“Worldcon”), is delighted to announce “Teaching Science Fiction,” a workshop for teachers, librarians, and parents on how to use science fiction as a teaching tool. The workshop is a collaborative effort with LoneStarCon 3, and is organized and presented by AboutSF, an organization based at the University of Kansas.

This workshop is a half-day seminar on developing a class on science fiction for primary or secondary students. Educators are the target audience for this course, whether they are interested in designing a class on SF, or want to incorporate SF readings into existing classes. No prior knowledge of the genre is assumed, and general attendees are welcome to attend as well.
