Lesson 10: Analyzing word choice and irony in a literary text and how they contribute to character and theme development

Students complete a gallery walk to review the research they did on the 1950s, then review the overarching questions they will explore while reading the main unit text, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Students begin reading the text and analyzing the author’s word choice and use of irony in developing the main character and theme.
