Students will study Ray Bradbury and his 4 short stories in the book to get a good understanding of the author’s choice, theme, tone, diction, mood, style, text structure, and imagery.

The goal is to be able to “hear” the author and understand that authors have their own purpose for writing.

To find our purpose for reading, we have to understand what is written and somewhat pretend like we can have a conversation with the author.

The final project of this unit will be to create a series of social media posts (quotes and explanation) from the point of view of Ray Bradbury which explains a little bit about who he is, what he believes, his style, and a few of his most impactful beliefs or quotes that we gather from his writings.

We will practice annotating texts, using reading strategies, learning academic language, and how to pick out the important quotes from the text and be able to respond to those quotes verbally and on paper.
