Interpreting The Story: "Ghostwriter"

Frankenstein, Mr. Data, Hal, and DEFCON, the computer featured in Kyle Downey’s tale, “Ghostwriter,” all illustrate the dangers of creating intelligent life. After reading Downey’s story, class members craft their own narrative in which an object plays a major role. Richly detailed, the plan includes pre-reading exercises, a reading check, a vocabulary in context exercise, and critical thinking questions. No link is provided for the story, but the tale can be easily accessed on the Internet.
