Morning! Looking forward to a great fishbowl over part 2 of Fahrenheit. Remember, anything from this section is fair game: comprehension questions, analysis questions, and big picture questions.
You guys are doing well with all of our expectations. Some seem challenged, however, with the idea of incorporating passages into each response. Remember, for each question & comment, I'm asking you to include & cite a passage from the text; aim for fewer, better responses. Be sure, too, that the passage you include, in fact, supports your thinking, discussing its relevance to your argument. Here are a few of your classmates who did a great job with that in our last discussion. Please use their questions and comments as good examples.
Here is one of Becca's comments: "It is mentioned that a quote Montag read was 'stamped with Fiery Steele' into his mind, and I think that it might show that fire is starting to hurt him, because reading that book was against everything he used to believe in very strongly [so] he basically betrayed himself. Maybe it is giving him an idea as to how much he is hurting other people". (Pg 34)
And Monica's "The way of life they live is part of who the people are. When Beatty is talking to Montag he said that people like Clarisse don't happen very often. "Luckily, queer ones like her don't happen often. We know how to nip most of them in the bud, early." (Bradbury 58)
And a great comment from Meghan: "I think that completely depends on what family you're born into because parents beliefs and lifestyles tend to pass on to their children. For example, on page 7 Clarice says "Oh, just my mother and father and uncle sitting around, talking." I think this shows that the reason Clarice thinks so much is because the rest of her family talks instead of being on technology.
Here's another great comment from Ben: "It seems as though Mildred and Montag fight a lot. I think that they will get divorced. Montag on page 53 says 'For God's sake, let me be!" If they don't get divorced then their marriage will be complicated.'"
