Bradbury's deliberate inclusion of the poem Dover Beach within Fahrenheit 451 offers the perfect opportunity for students to explore the development of a theme across genres. This product includes a prompt, an outline, space for students to write their short essays, and a scoring guide. It is a print and use product.
Since only a portion of the poem is included in the book, I recommend finding a copy of Dover Beach for students to access.
Also look for my PPT over Dover Beach which provides historical context for the poem and leads students into a better understanding of some possible themes to explore.
