Fahrenheit 451, while a classic, is one of the most relevant novels of all time - it offers a clear warning to a culture lost in its technology and emptiness and on the brink of destruction. Its narrative is one that certainly speaks to teens today, and this unit is the product of classroom experience and has been years in development.
This unit plan is designed to take your students through Fahrenheit 451 in a way that the novel comes alive. Students study and dig into the text with the carefully crafted questions on the active reading guides, and you will be confident that key standards are being addressed. From the modern connections
provided such as a Tweet for Me summarizing exercise to the informational text readings that bring in the scientific side of the novel, students will recognize the importance of this classic text as critical in their world. Various other interactive, hands-on, and creative activities will provide you with many ways to engage your students and have them take ownership of their own learning
in this four to five week unit plan. All the basics are here, too: reading quizzes, grammar worksheets, journal prompts, vocabulary, final exam, and final project prompts. You can use it all or just use some.
