This close reading guide micro-focuses on one pivotal scene from parts 1,2, & 3 in Bradbury's novel to engage young readers in developing awareness of figurative language and its impact through literary vehicles such as metaphor, paradox, irony, allusion, and imagery. Also included, is a close read of Matthew Arnold's, "Dover Beach" along with some helpful contextualization and in-depth analysis of the poem. High order thinking questions are placed in the marginalia of each guide to encourage students to interact with the text in a way that cultivates strong annotation practices. Each guide includes critical constructed response questions that pair with the reading focus and the larger themes covered in the novel.
