Make sure you have a document called "___________ (your last name) Truman Show Notes" and share it with me directly at email@example.com

a. Characters: Names, personality traits, clothes, things they say
b. Motifs/symbols: Specific objects that seem symbolic, what they might represent, and how they change throughout the film
c. Questions: Level 1, 2, and 3 questions; try to answer them at the end of the film
d. Connections to Fahrenheit 451: Be specific and original (these will form the backbone of your essay)
1. Study words 16-30 in your F451 vocabulary packets; quiz tomorrow.
2. If you're delivering your banned book speech tomorrow, prepare and rehearse.
