Science and Technology explores questions around the central concepts of STEM fields: How do we interact with science and technology on a daily basis? Is technology surpassing biology? What are the ethics of science and technology? Does technology rule our economy? How is the internet changing society?  Readings by biologists, climate scientists, journalists, ethicists, novelists, engineers, and others take up these questions and more. Questions and assignments for each selection provide a range of activities for students.

The Bedford Spotlight Reader Series is an exciting line of single-theme readers, each reflecting Bedford’s trademark care and quality. An editorial board of a dozen compositionists at schools with courses focusing on specific themes assists in the development of the series. Each reader collects thoughtfully chosen selections sufficient for an entire writing course—about 35 pieces—to allow instructors to provide carefully developed, high-quality instruction at an affordable price. Bedford Spotlight Readers are designed to help students from all majors make sustained inquiries from multiple perspectives, opening up topics such as borders, food, gender, happiness, humor, language, monsters, music,  subcultures, and sustainability, to critical analysis. The readers are flexibly arranged in thematic chapters, with each chapter focusing in depth on a different facet of the central topic. The instructor resource tab of each reader’s catalog page includes instructor support with sample syllabi and additional teaching resources.
