TeachersPayTeachers has a plethora of elementary school work, but where is all the high school work. This is an entire unit on Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I started by teaching about dystopias and hoped to connect it to more common movies they’ve seen. I also started teaching The Hero’s Journey, paired it with a viewing of Mulan. I included my Hero’s Journey worksheet (which was for sale separately) where they can match the scene to the stage.
I have included a debate lesson that they did, topics included things such as: “Does technology promote knowledge or ignorance” or “Should schools and libraries enforce censorship.” This makes students learn how to ask good questions, think on their feet and defend their reasoning.
There are four worksheets with fill in the blank summaries. As much as we’d like the students to read all the books, word for word, it’s unlikely. So the summary ensures that at least they have a better understanding of what’s going on in the book. It is also accompanied by deeper thinking questions. It helps do encourage discussion about what’s going on in the text.
I’ve included two types of quizzes. The first one is exactly like the worksheets, the concept is if you do the worksheets, you’ll do well on the quiz. There are two different versions so that you can choose or you can have different tests for different classes. The second test asks students to explain which of the events are the most important. This test is better for the students because it asks them to defend their thinking.
Lastly, I've included an essential question final summative assessment. They should develop their own essential question and then write an analytical essay to support their claim
There are 16 documents (to explain the price) that cover the entire book and include assessments.
