What is it?
This Fahrenheit 451 Literary Devices and Figurative Language Activity is a time-saving tool that engages students in identifying and analyzing alliteration, symbolism, metaphor, simile, irony, and foreshadowing.
Sentences and phrases from the novel are given, and students must correctly identify the type of figurative language and then explain why the sentence or phrase exemplifies that concept.
Why is it needed?
Fahrenheit 451 is a dense, deep text that requires thoughtful analysis and discussion to fully understand. Ray Bradbury uses figurative language and other literary devices on nearly every page, and without a thorough understanding of those tools, student readers will miss out on the beauty of the language and the importance of this classic work.
How is it used?
This Fahrenheit 451 activity is designed for in-class use. Following a lesson on figurative language and other literary devices, students can work in pairs or small groups to analyze each sentence. After their own analysis, bring the class back together for a discussion of their interpretations.
