As you discuss Fahrenheit 451 through page 80, think about trying to make some connections between Bradbury's future society and ours.

Enjoy, and bring in quotations from the text to support some of your brilliant points!

F451 Fishbowl #3

As you blog about pages 40-63 in Fahrenheit 451, slow down a little...pull in quotations that you think are significant or confusing. Use your annotations to guide you.

As always, maintain your professionalism and enjoy yourselves.

I look forward to reading this over spring break. And, by the way, I wish all of you a fantastic, safe spring break!
