Focus: To what extent is our reality "real"?
1. Warm-up: Reading a little background on Google glass, watching Google's advertisement, and considering a few questions:
What advantages does this technology offer us?
How might this technology possibly harm us as a society? How could it be misued?
In your opinion, do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages? Would Bradbury agree with you?
2. Setting up your notes for The Truman Show and watching the trailer
a. Characters: Names, personality traits, clothes, things they say
b. Motifs/symbols: Specific objects that seem symbolic, what they might represent, and how they change throughout the film
c. Questions: Level 1, 2, and 3 questions; try to answer them at the end of the film
d. Connections to Fahrenheit 451: Be specific and original (these will form the backbone of your essay)
I will collect these notes on the last day of watching the film.
3. Entering The Truman Show
1. Study for Friday's vocabulary quiz over words 1-15.
2. Continue bringing your F451 annotations to class so I can check them.
