West Florida High School of Advanced Technology
Summer Reading Program 2023
Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel that was first published and is often regarded as perhaps the greatest work by
American author Ray Bradbury.
The novel follows the journey of Guy Montag. Montag is a fireman in the unspecified future whose job is to burn any book upon discovery. Readers will follow the protagonist as he rediscovers the importance of the written word and individual thought.
Assignment: Students are to read the novel and annotate/take note of character development, meaningful text that appeals to the student, and themes. A formal assignment and assessment will be given to ALL 10th grade students the first week of school.
*Copies of the novel can be found at local bookstores, Amazon, and the local library. A PDF is also available: https://jghsenglish.edublogs.org/files/2015/02/Fahrenheit-451.pdf
Students can use an eReader if desired and follow along to the audio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkFymT3u5w0
