This 31 page Word document is a unit plan for Fahrenheit 451. It is designed as literature circle unit, where students rotate jobs weekly. The jobs are "Discussion Director", "Connection Dominator", "Vocabulary Wizard", and "Creative Genius." In each meeting the "Discussion Director" leads a group of 3-4 students in a small group structured discussion of the novel. Students with special needs may receive the discussion prompts in advance. Also, the "Discussion Director" handouts (4 total), are versatile, e.g. could be used as whole group comprehension handouts, be broken up into warm-ups, general writing prompts, and so on. For clarity, I recommend photocopying each task on different colors of paper, e.g. "Connection Dominator" is always green. This unit is time-tested, engaging, and has really helped my 8th graders understand a complex novel.
