    One-Day Research Assignment - March 18th

    Step 1:  First, choose one theme of Fahrenheit 451 for your one-day research assignment:

       a  Using too much technology can have a negative impact on the individual and society as a whole.

       b  Art should never be censored because it doesn't allow for creative expression.

       c  Reading and discussing books is important for our society.

       d  People should be more social and have meaningful conversations.

       e  Everyone should be more aware of what is happening around the world.

       f  Blind conformity can be dangerous for the individual and society.


    Step 2:  Conduct some research to find one online article that will support the theme.  The article doesn't have to be about the book.

    Step 3:  Next, write a 10-part paragraph with citations based on the theme you chose and using evidence from the article as your text evidence.  This paragraph will have nothing to do with the book.

    Step 4:  Finally, write a Works Cited citation for the online article you used as your source.
