Please turn in your Fahrenheit 451 worksheet from yesterday.
1. What are some things that contemporary United States has in common with the world of Fahrenheit 451?
2. Ray Bradbury takes technology to the extreme in the world of Fahrenheit 451 with the giant parlor walls, the mechanical hounds, the seeing snake, etc. What is something that you see in the world that, if taken to an extreme, would create a dystopian society for you. I suggest starting out with: Imagine if you were in a world where _____ has taken over. Describe this setting in as much detail as possible.
