    Example Presentation for Independent Novel Example Presentation for Independent Novel Presentation Transcript

    • Fahrenheit 451
      Miss Norris
    • The Story
      In a future society, firemen set fires—to books.
      Books are banned because they contain different ideas, which cause conflict.
      People are consumed by television and entertainment, they do not think about life or the world.
      Montag is a fireman, but meets a teenager named Clarisse who opens his mind to a possibility beyond this highly controlled society, and causes him to question everything he’s ever known…
    • My opinion
      Good for a critical reading, lots of interesting metaphors and allusions—Ray Bradbury is an amazing writer, and the cultural influence of Cold War US is impossible to miss.
      Probably wouldn’t have finished it if I was reading it for fun.
    • Target Audiences
      Book censors
      Technophiles
      Young minds
    • Bans and Challenges
      Ironically, this book about book banning has seen its share of banning itself:
      Foxworth, Mississippi, 1999 – Removed from required reading list after parent contests use of “God damn”. (banned-books.com)
      Conroe, Texas, 2006 – Challenged by student and parent for “the cussing in it and the burning of the Bible”. (Wrigley)
    • Bans and Challenges cont’d
      YouTube.com
    • Should it be banned?
      Important message that extends beyond the situation in the book.
      Nothing graphic, vulgar or obscene.
      I’d let my 6 year old cousin read it, and recommend it to teens.
    • Recommend it?
      I think high school students should read this book as a reminder of the importance of questioning things and not being mindlessly complacent.
      It’s also an excellent book to study for literary analysis or to compare with other books and films, and has an enjoyable story line.
