Storyboard Text

  • This book is unfit and should be censored in school! I can name different parts of the book that are controversial and unfit for students. 1. Mentions "hell" five times.  2. Gives immoral descriptions of Jesus. 3. Man slaps a woman on page 63.  The list goes on...
  • Fahrenheit 451 is centered around Guy Montag, a "firefighter" charged with burning books, lives in an isolated society where books are outlawed and burned because of the government fearing independent thought.  The people living in this society, such as Montag's wife, are fed information on television from the government. The society is very much advised that lacking knowledge is best, and anyone who has studied must go into hiding. Montag falls in love with a young book-obsessed girl named Clarisse. This relationship leads him to question the society he lives in and their motives. Eventually he is found out and must either go back to his job, or face the consequences of being caught.
  • This book is a classic that is beneficial to education. It shows students a world where people no longer seek knowledge. The story in this dystopian society that the characters go through get students thinking about the choices and abilities they take for granted.  Profanity and immoral statements are plentiful enough in kids, and a book will not affect their personalities.  The strong messages from the revelations the author presents about the future outweigh the book's faults.
