Humanities 7 – Unit 6 Fahrenheit 451 Interdisciplinary Project

Unit 6 - Fahrenheit 451 and I Am Malala Interdisciplinary Project

In this project, inspired by the books Fahrenheit 451 and I Am Malala (or Maus for students that have Mr. K for ELA), students will create either an (1) essay or a (2) creative piece (i.e. art, poetry, creative writing, a cartoon, dance, song, rap, video, photography exhibit, slideshow, skit, script, play, extra research about a topic in the book(s), community project idea/plan, etc.) that will help our class understand, apply, and learn from the texts on a deeper level. The creative pieces will be presented to the class in Ms. M and Mr. V’s classes between 5/17-5/22 (see complete schedule below). Students that have Mr. K will present the following week (5/21). You can get started by using the links below.
