Today's journal entry was, American author/philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” He also wrote, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Respond to these quotations. How do they apply to your life/world? How do they apply to F451, so far?

We had a lengthy class discussion about the journal prompt, and then moved into a reading of chapter 1 of Ralph Waldo Emerson's Nature. If you were absent, please download it here and read it. (You do not need to do the assignment at the bottom of the page.)

Following this, we had three "to-do" items:

1. Create character visualizations for Montag, Mildred, Clarisse, and the Mechanical Hound. You can draw them or create a magazine collage. Each character visualization should include 2-3 quotes by or about that character, with the page number in parentheses immediately after the quotation. Example: "Here is a quotation" (31). These are due next time.

2. Complete the pre-reading vocabulary for "chunk" 2 of the book.

3. Finish reading Part 1, which ends on page 68.

Your comment will be posted after it is approved.
