Oryx and Crake Lesson Plan

Bringing in Technology

Throughout the study of Oryx and Crake, students with disabilities should have the option of using dictation software for writing assignments, and text-to-speech software for reading assignments.

Students may wish to design a podcast or video version of the skit they create for the Day 1 Classroom Activity "I Am Not My Childhood" and the Day 4 Classroom Activity "Exercises in Problematics."

Students might wish to access browser-based timeline creating software for the Day 1 Classroom Activity "The Years of the Flood."

If you have students with the resources and skills for game design, this can be incorporated into the Day 2 Classroom Activity "Fresh Blood and Budding Roses."
