Now that all the craziness of getting Term 1 wrapped up is finished, we can move on to Term 2. We are into the second part of Fahrenheit 451 and a discussion on distraction and advertising. Here’s what we’ve discussed so far:

- Why does he refer to the allusion of Hercules and Antaeus?
- What does Mrs Phelps cry when Montag reads the poem?
The in-class assignment was to create a short commercial with a tag line and jingle. The stickiest commercial wins!
