Question #1

Do you think male and female students need to be taught in different ways? How so, or why not?

In an all-boys class, do you prefer having a female or a male teacher? Or does it matter? Please explain your thinking.

Question #2

How do you like being in an all-boys class? Would you choose to be in an all-boys class again?

Question #3

How would this class be different if it were coed instead of all-boys?

Homework: If Bradbury were sitting next to you...

Directions: Please respond to the following question before midnight tonight. Be sure to bring in at least one quotation from Fahrenheit 451 to support your brilliant response.

If Ray Bradbury were to follow you around throughout the day, what would he think about the way you conduct your life? What would he think of AHS? Again, please bring in textual evidence to defend your claims.
