Lesson: Jenny Graviet -- Fahrenheit 451 Extended: Censorship in the World

1 Favorites

Lesson Objective

9th Grade/Language Arts: Students will be asked to research an event somewhere in the world (beyond the United States) where information (books, art, culture) has been destroyed or censored in some way. Once they have decided a topic, they will meticulously gather facts and information before creating a fictional character to insert into that situation. The character they fictionalize will be a product of their own imaginations, but he/she must be factually correct in culture, setting, and so forth. Because students will be required to tell a factual story but with a fictionalized character, students will be forced to apply both research and empathy—and hence increase their knowledge and their awareness of global issues.
