by Paul Scott Anderson


Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Should We Terraform Mars?" by Paul Scott Anderson.

In the informational text “Should We Terraform Mars?” Paul Scott Anderson discusses whether or not humans should attempt to change Mars’ environment and atmosphere to be inhabitable by humans.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Man vs. Nature and Technology, Progress & Industry as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"Who's in control: man or nature?", "What are the costs and benefits of technology?", and "How do we view nature?"
