Product Description

Fahrenheit 451 novel teaching unit, complete with 84 pages of student coursework, activities, quizzes, tests, and more, fully aligned with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts for 10th through 12th grade.

SPECIAL NOTE for DISTANCE LEARNING : I have marked this product as appropriate for Distance Learning as this guide is an entire "ready-to-use," complete unit of study for Fahrenheit 451. This guide has everything from pre-reading activities to post-reading assessment tools, and everything in-between.

Our products are designed to require as much or as little teacher instruction or intervention as you desire. Lessons and activities are clear, and provide students with full explanation on how to complete activities (giving examples and providing mini-lessons whenever possible), requiring little to no explanation or detailed instruction from the teacher. In many cases, students will be able to self-direct their study and completion of work according to your requirements. Additionally, I have unlocked the PDF so that those who need to use parts of this Guide in Google Classroom can modify it for their needs.

PLEASE NOTE: This material is still copyright protected, and it is a violation to sell or post these materials in any publicly accessible site. You may, however post what you need for your students on a secure school site or similar, where the general public cannot access these materials. THANK YOU!

Here's what Warren's Wordsmiths (TpT Seller) said: I really don't know what I would do without these lessons. When I purchase from this store I know that I have a paced out unit ready to go with little prep work on my end. This makes it so much easier for a super involved teacher to go confidently into the classroom ready to teach!

Mrs Milward ELA (TpT Seller) said: I cannot say enough how great this resource is. It is fully comprehensive and aligned with common core informational standards as well. I love that I can pick and choose which activities I want. The teacher's guide and quizzes are more than sufficient. So worth the price!

Teaching with Simply Novel's Fahrenheit 451 complete unit gives the rigor you are looking for, while helping your students enjoy the story itself. Your students will gain an enjoyment and understanding of the literature and a grasp of the skills required for state and national testing. You can be confident you're addressing the skills your students need to learn, and you'll love having more time on your hands not having to create lessons and materials yourself!

Since 2005, Simply Novel (formerly Secondary Solutions) has been creating highly-acclaimed, superior-quality resources for middle and high school ELA. As one of the top secondary sellers on TpT since 2006, you can be assured that our products truly deliver!

Candace T. said: I love Secondary Solutions because they give me a baseline for where I want to start my lesson plans. The lessons are easily malleable into stations activities or projects if I want to create, or I can simply print and go. Love everything about them.


Please Note: This Guide was written before the advent of the Common Core Standards, however, the activities and lessons meet many of the CCSS as written. Activities and lessons for this Guide are aligned with the CCSS, however, Comprehension Check Questions, quizzes, and tests may not expansively address the full rigor of the Common Core. Common Core State Standards have not been individually notated within this Guide.
