Today we did a sneeze: What does Montag mean when he asks Mildred, “When was the last time you were really bothered?”
After, we watched a video on the Mengele twins to better understand how the Holocaust fits into F451.
Homework: Find concrete evidence that demonstrates reasoning for why Ms. Navarro would teach you about the Mengele experiments.
Today we skipped the sneeze and used a close reading technique to dissect an article in pairs. https://www.thoughtco.com/heinrich-heine-on-burning-books-251009 The article was on book burning in the Holocaust. After, we used the evidence found for homework from yesterday and the evidence found in class to discuss why the Holocaust is relevant to F451.
Finally, we watched some videos on book burning. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=holocaust+and+book+burning&&view=detail&mid=1DE5EA679BD273253FD31DE5EA679BD273253FD3&rvsmid=D495F2EBE6FCBA4FD1BCD495F2EBE6FCBA4FD1BC&FORM=VDQVAP
Today we silently read, worked on our packets, did a grade check, and engaged in make-up work before the end of the quarter.
Today we wrote on Beatty’s analysis of happiness in terms of Montag. “You ask why to a lot of things and you end up very unhappy, indeed.” Is “Why” a bad question?
After, we searched for the theme of happiness in F451 by quoting the book, and analyzing the concrete detail. This was followed by a class discussion.
