Fahrenheit 451 1-24 Questions

Fahrenheit Fishbowl 1-24 Period 5

Fahrenheit Fishbowl 1-24 Period 2

SAT- Wonder Woman style

Every week our students create interesting projects demonstrating their use of the assigned 10 SAT vocab words. My favorite activity by far though is where they are asked in groups to write their own song about Wonder Woman (my personal hero) and then we perform the songs in front of class podcasting them for all to hear. I am going to have the students comment about their work and about performing but for me sitting in the audience, there wasn't a better way to spend a Friday, laughing, listening and appreciating their willingness to step out of the box and do something different.


Here are the lyrics to their wonderfully creative tributes to Wonder Woman:
Broken

Soulless Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman on the Range

Wonder Woman

She's Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is my Girl

Wonderwomen

Man I feel Like Wonder Woman

My Bizzare Woman

WonderWoman

Before He Cheats with Wonder Woman

Hero Town

My Tragic Love Song

Wonder Woman Our Hero

Censorship...Becareful what you write, read, speak or think

You can respond to all or pick just one...
1. Is it okay to have books on making bombs in the school library?
2. Will banning books keep people from reading them?
3. Television shows are censored, so are song lyrics—what makes books different?
