Transcript of Fahrenheit 451 SAMPLE

Fahrenheit 451 ...but this is only the tip of the iceberg In this dystopian novel, books have become nothing more than kindling. Books are illegal and local firemen are now called to set ablaze anyone and anything in their way. Some say ignorance is bliss, but Guy Montag struggles with the lack of control and lack of knowledge in his life after nearly losing his wife to an overdose of sleeping pills... Fireman Guy Montag must come to grips with his lack of knowledge and understanding, challenging societal norms that have been and will continue to lead the world of F451 into dystopia, unless something can be done. The human race has developed dependencies on violence and entertainment, so long as it doesn't involve thinking. Fahrenheit 451

Sentence #1: Thesis Statement/Topic Sentence: States both the topic of the paragraph and the main point you want to make about that topic. Mildred exemplifies bad character in her obssession with tehcnology and consequencial poor treatment of Montag. Sentence #2: First Supporting Detail: Introduce the reason that supports your main point.

Sentence #3: Quote/Example: Provide a quote or specific example as evidence or support.
