Scribe 5th hour October 18, 2011

Your scribe is here to recapitulate for you. We started our class with our customary greetings.

Then it was down to business as we began sharing our opinions on polleverywhere.The topics today were: censorship is never justified, and governments should always try to make people happy. Click, click, click, and then the discussion stormed on.

We started our symbolic element project. Note to self, it will be due this Friday!

As there are many elements in the periodic table, books have many elements. In groups of 2 or by yourself...

1. Create a symbol for your symbolic element of Fahrenheit 451 (letter symbol like the ones on the periodic table). Confused? Keep reading for further instructions.

2. The atomic mass is always 451.

3. Include the atomic number (1-10) to rank the importance of the symbol in the book (10 being the most important)

4. Come up with at least one strong image of your symbol.

5. Have quotations from the book and they must be cited correctly ex. (Bradbury 7)

The groups are:

Brian, Sanjay- Fire

Emily H., Alex- Kerosene

Troy, Cole- Mechanical Hound
