Description

Grab every eye in the room with this 39-slide lecture that provides all of the background information your class will need to launch a study of Ray Bradbury’s sci-fi novel, Fahrenheit 451. (Download includes both Prezi and Google Slides versions.)

The presentation includes a high-interest attention-grabber on book censorship and a quickwrite topic designed to help make Ray Bradbury’s themes relevant to your students (15 minutes for writing and discussion). Then, launch into the 30-minute lecture which covers the time period and setting, profiles of five important characters, and information about historical influences including Nazi book burnings and Sen. Joseph McCarthy’s HUAC/The Red Scare. Modern connections to computer programming, digital e-readers, and school censorship are also included.
