Parent Guide > The Machine Stops
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 "The Machine Stops" by E. M. Forster.
In "The Machine Stops," E.M. Forster offers a chilling warning about becoming overly dependent on technology.
"What should the future look like?" and "What does it mean to feel alone?"
Ways to support your child:
Ask your child about this science fiction at home:
- What was "The Machine Stops" about?
- What did you learn about Loneliness & Isolation?
- What did you learn about Technology, Progress & Industry?
- Watch AudioBook: Recording of 'The Machine Stops' at home with your child.
