Look over the list and pick out the books you have read or heard of over the years.
What surprises do you have from this list?
Looking at the list as a whole what seems to be the top three reasons these books are being challenged?
Censorship: Who determines what should be censored and why? How much should we worry about offending others? What happens when people stop caring? Why censor? These are the questions brought up in Fahrenheit 451!
How is Satire Created in F451?
F451 as Satire (you should write these down)
Development of characters
Symbols (hands, fire, phoenix, books)
All the terms you took notes over for SATIRE!
So what does this have to do with YOU!?!?!

want to fully understand the satirical nature
of F451 in order to gain an understanding of the
deeper meaning of this novel.
Prior to writing F451 Bradbury wrote a short story called The Pedestrian. Some of the characters in this short story will make an appearance in F451. Today we will read and discuss this short story.
