Today, we will begin reading Fahrenheit 451.
Now that we have some background information about the novel, what should we focus on as we are reading?
Keep in mind the goals for the unit and your embedded assessment
How do we make inferences?
Today, we will infer about the characters and the setting, or society of the novel.
I will read the first two-three pages and model how I would make inferences about the characters and/or setting of the novel.
Then, you will work in your groups to continue and I will stop along the way to discuss.
What can we infer about the main character?
What inference can you make about society?
Read through page 5
Make an inference about the character of Montag and about society.
Complete the remainder of the activities on the page provided.
When time is up, I will have you engage in a collaborative discussion about Montag and the society. You will need to:
elaborate or disagree with another person
have at least one question prepared
the leader will lead the discussion!
