Fahrenheit451 TDQ--assignment due!

Students have a new assignment due by Monday, January26 (a) and Tuesday, January 27th (b).  

Here are the questions we're currently answering in Language 1.Read this passage from page 14.  “It was two o'clock in the morning. Was it only an hour ago, Clarisse McClellan in the street, and him coming in, and the dark room and his foot kicking the little crystal bottle? Only an hour, but the world had melted down and sprung up in a new and colorless form.”

Based on this passage, the reader knows that Clarisse has made a big impression on Montag.  Using other details from the text, explain why she has such a big impact on him.

2.  By page sixteen, we’ve been introduced to three characters: Montag, Clarisse, and Mildred.     Focus on one of these characters.  How does this character reveal what their society values? Be sure to clearly state one or two values of the community and prove it with evidence from the characterization.

3.  Read the passage that begins “One drop of rain….” on page 15. In this passage, and others, there is a sudden change in style.  Why does Bradbury do this?
In class, we used the ICED acronym to structure our responses:


Here is a sample TDQ and paragraph as a reference.  Evidence is highlighted for you but please do not highlight on your final draft. 

 This will be graded with a shorter version of the College and Career Readiness Rubric.
