Examining Battlefield Earth as an Educational Resource
Battlefield Earth by L. Ron Hubbard was first published in 1982 by L. Ron Hubbard and has become one of the seminal works of science fiction. The books focuses on Earth in the year 3000. The Earth is ruled by an alien race and humans are an endangered species, really nothing more than animals. Although the novel has been used as an educational resource by many, there has never been an approved and fully explained guide for that until now. Under contract with Galaxy Press, the publisher of Hubbard's works, Dr. David Powers created this white paper to aid in the use of Battlefield Earth as an educational resource in the classroom. This book covers many things, including the history of science fiction, L. Ron Hubbard, and the book itself. There are many examples that can be used for the classroom. Academic subjects covered include STEM, language arts, science, government, and more. If you enjoy the novel or ever considered it for education this will greatly expand your capabilities. For bulk orders for the classroom, both electronic and print editions are available. Dr. David Powers is an adventurer, philosopher, and pioneer and lives a life of constant experimentation. His life's compass is "to seek out adventure in everything he does by being intentional, determined, and unstoppable and by energizing and outfitting others to embark on their own adventures." He fulfills his purpose through speaking and books and is a best-selling author in psychology and education. He is a decorated veteran of the Marine Corps and a founding member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He is married and the proud father of four feral boys and one princess that he and his wife homeschool. His mission in life is to find the magical best mug of coffee in the world.
