February 12*

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "No Memory" by Stone Temple Pilots; "Short Memory" by Midnight Oil; "Memory Loss" by Deltron 3030]

Describe your earliest memories and/or the things you remember best.  How are they similar or different-- and how is your reaction to them similar or different-- in comparison with the things you are told to remember in school?

1. Journal
2. Discussion about the end of Fahrenheit 451


2. A test on the book that is so savage it will make children weep and sin no more.

Hope you did your homework this weekend.

1. Find a poem that you would have picked to read to the women in the parlor.
2. In a post entitled PARLOR POETRY, explain why Montag (Bradbury, really) picked "Dover Beach" and go on to explain why you chose what you chose.


  1. I'm not sure if you already answered this, but I just wanted to make sure. When we're looking for a poem do we have to find something that's saying something similar to Dover Beach? Or just taking the concept of why Bradbury chose that poem and going off of that.

    1. I think it can be either way but I am not to sure about it.

    2. Nick sorry I didn't see this sooner, you can choose anything that you think would make Montag's/Bradbury's point.

    3. Haha, it's okay I'm still up :P. Thanks Dr. Preston!
