Use this package of questions covering Ray Bradbury’s modern American novel, Fahrenheit 451, to pull your students into the text and inspire them to think deeply about Bradbury’s themes.
This packet includes five student handouts with detailed questions (plot points, inference, and personal connections) covering all three sections of Guy Montag’s dystopian journey. A separate 8-page detailed answer key is also included, of course. (A total of 13 pages in PDF format.)
In addition to working as homework assignments, the sheets can also serve as small-group or full-class discussion starters, short-answer quizzes, and/or differentiated enrichment. I like to mix-and-match the worksheets to keep things fresh as we work through our Fahrenheit 451 unit. More details on this here: https://laurarandazzo.com/2017/06/23/conquering-question-fatigue/
