In Part II of "The Sieve and the Sand" of Fahrenheit 451, Montag reads the poem "Dover Beach" aloud to Mildred and her friends. This poem has a significant effect on the women, especially Mrs. Phelps.
This product allows your students to analyze the poem "Dover Beach" using the TPCASTT method. After students have interpreted the poem on both a literal and symbolic level through use of the TPCASTT method, they are then provided with questions to help them understand why this poem had such a deep effect on Mrs. Phelps in the novel. To accomplish this, students will have to make comparisons between the lines and message of the poem to the world of Fahrenheit 451. Also included in this product is a PowerPoint Presentation, containing notes and answers to the questions for review when your students are done with the activity.
