BUNDLE OF 30!!
Fahrenheit 451: 7 Quizzes / Plot Study / 5 Common Core Wkst / Lit Circle Packet
Fahrenheit 451. Fahrenheit 451 Quiz. Fahrenheit 451 Bundle. This bundle is seven 10-question quizzes that test COMPREHENSION, ANALYSIS, LITERARY TERMS, and CONTEXTUAL DEFINITIONS of the novel Fahrenheit 451. I have divided the novel into seven 25-page segments (except the final segment is only 15 pages) and provided a quiz on each segment. Each quiz in the series becomes increasingly more difficult as they test for comprehension of plot, definitions in context, analysis of literary devices, and function of literary devices. This is a great way to follow up the reading of each chapter, use for a question bank for a test, or provide as a multiple choice study guide. The answer keys are included.
COMMON CORE STANDARDS:
This is a pack of 5 graphic organizers I use to teach the common core standards for reading literature. These can be used with ANY piece of literature.
This is a graphic organizer I use to teach how an author develops a character throughout a piece of literature . It is an effective tool that helps students identify the motivating desire of a character and how the rising action shapes said desire in a text. I have had great success with this method and organizer. Each student is required to find four instances in a text the support the development of the character and analyze them. Prompts have been placed throughout the worksheet to help incite student analysis. I have them select four instance so that they can write a body paragraph that requires at least three concrete details (textual examples) in order to support a claim.
The process aligns with the Common Core Standard: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.3 Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.

This is a graphic organizer I use to teach how an author develops a theme throughout a piece of literature . It is an effective tool that helps students identify themes in a text and organize specific instances within the respective text of said theme. I have had great success with this method and organizer. Each student is required to find three instances in a text the support the development of the theme. I have them select only three so that they can write a body paragraph that requires three concrete details (textual examples) in order to support a claim.
The process aligns with the Common Core Standard: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.2 Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text.
I have a free flipped classroom video lecture that serves as a wonderful companion resource for the first part of this graphic organizer. It can be found here:
LANGUAGE & INFERENCE
These are two graphic organizers I use to teach how an author develops language throughout a piece of literature. Both are used for a close reading of a text. They are effective tools that help students engage a text. I have had great success with this method and organizer.
Each student is required to determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text. They then collect context, research, and make inferences about the subtext and setting based on what they acquire. Prompts have been placed throughout the worksheet to help incite student analysis.
The process aligns with the Common Core Standard: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.9-10.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language evokes a sense of time and place; how it sets a formal or informal tone).
This is a comprehensive plot studies analysis packet that can be used with Ray Bradbury's story "Fahrenheit 451". It is a user-friendly tool for any teacher as they they walk their students through the elements of story. Each of the 5 stages of plot are clearly defined, giving the students tangible objectives to meet as they engage in analysis. The packet then walks the students, step-by-step, through analysis of characterization, setting, theme, and symbolism. Each page is formatted as a graphic organizer. The symbolism analysis page is formatted as a flow chart rendering a rather difficult analysis accessible and inteligible.
The graphic organizers are not story-specific so they can be printed and used for any text.
