Fahrenheit 451

Ray Bradbury

The Boomerang is a monthly digital downloadable product that features copywork and dictation passages from a specific read aloud novel. It is geared toward 8th to 10th graders (ages 12—advanced, 13-15) and is the indispensable tool for Brave Writer parents who want to teach language arts in a natural, literature-bathed context.

This issue comes from the early years of Brave Writer’s Boomerangs so it isn’t quite as robust as more current titles (that’s why the lower price). It’s an oldie but still a goodie!

This guide contains the following features:

  • 4 Passages (one per week) for copywork/dictation
  • Notes about punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, and literary elements
  • 9 Think Piece questions
  • Golden Lines prompt
  • 6 pages
  • Original Publication Date: April 2010


About the book

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce [...]. But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn’t live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television.—Amazon
