Today's journal entry was "We need not to be let alone. We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?"
Each student was provided a copy of "Fire as a Religious Symbol". Read this, and pages 113-120 of F451. Then write a 3-5 paragraph analysis of the way fire is described in F451. You might compare/contrast different ways that fire is used, and what those usages reveal about their cultures; you also might use info from the article and book to explain what Montag means when he says “We never burned right.” You need to include CITED quotations from the book and/or article.
Additionally, you need to finish reading F451 after completing pre-reading vocabulary #4.
