All Boys, All Blogged: February 25, 2013

Focus: What's going on the minds of Bradbury's characters? Are our minds like theirs?

1. Warm-up: Diagramming your brain

2. Visually analyzing the characters in Fahrenheit 451 through brain diagrams (Ms. Leclaire will be checking your annotations during this time)

3. Engaging in a little Q&A: Which parts of the first reading assignment confused you?  Help a brother out.

4. Starting the next reading assignment together

1. Prepare for tomorrow's fishbowl by reading through page 40 and using your orange sheet to compose 5-10 good discussion questions.

2. If you received a 39 or below on your timed writing, your rewrite is due tomorrow.  Remember to follow the revision policy: Highlight your changes in two colors, type a paragraph of explanation of your revisions, and attach everything to the original draft with the rubric.

3. You need to finish your banned book within the next week; I will give you class time on Friday and an extra weekend since I haven't given you any class time yet to read, but that's it.


  1. Will Montag go against the government because of reading the books?
