The Phoenix is an important symbol in Fahrenheit 451. Not only is it a logo of the firemen, it is also specifically alluded to by Granger in Part 3 of the novel, "Burning Bright."
This product includes a poem on the mythical creature of the phoenix. It asks students to interpret the myth of the phoenix through their reading of the poem by using the TPCASTT Method (Title, Paraphrase, Connotation, Attitude, Shift, Theme, Title Revisted). After understanding the myth of the phoenix, the product asks students to analyze Granger's specific allusion to the bird and dissect his meaning, as well as the fireman's meaning of the symbol. Also included in this product is a PowerPoint Presentation which includes all of the answers to the questions to review with your students.
