1. Sketching our first encounters with Clarisse (p.5-7), then Mildred (p.11-14)
- Opening to those pages, finding three significant words or phrases for each, then brainstorming their connotations.
- Make a statement about how Bradbury's language characterizes each woman (finding the larger pattern).
- Why do we meet Clarisse first?
2. Trying the same connotation exercise with Beatty and the other firemen (p.32-34)
- Sketch, then find significant words and phrases from these pages. Brainstorm their connotations.
- Make a statement (or ask a question) about how Bradbury's language characterizes Beatty?
- What did you notice that maybe no one else did? Try posting this or your above statement on today's class blog to kick off discussion.
3. Fishbowl Discussion #2: Pages 28-40 of F451
5. Wrapping up: Responding to the focus questions at the tippy top of today's blog.
1. We will have a vocabulary activity tomorrow; it helps to be familiar with the words, but you don't need to memorize them. Just keep flipping through them on quizlet.
2. Our first round of banned book speeches is tomorrow! Remember that if you're not ready or you don't show up on your assigned day, the most you can receive is half credit on your speech.
3. For Tuesday, March 29 we will be reading through page 63. If you're typing your reading journal, I will be looking in your folder to leave you feedback. If you're handwriting, I'll be checking in you on Wednesdays and Fridays. If you're conferencing, show up at your assigned time (you received an e-mail from me yesterday).
