Fahrenheit 451 Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet | Google Slides (TV14 – 2018)


Fahrenheit 451 Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet | Google Slides (TV14 – 2018) challenges students to deconstruct the concepts in this dystopian story based on Ray Bradbury’s 1953 novel. Explore how intentions and outcomes don’t always measure up and ask students to research instances in history when book burning occurred. Examine a few of the powerfully loaded quotes by asking students to use the context of the film and their own words to interpret them. Ask students to compare and contrast how social media is used in Montag’s world with how it used in today’s world.

Note: The time stamps may be off by a few seconds, depending on the version of this movie you watch. If the times don’t seem to match up, I’ve also included a short description of where to stop the film for each question.

This resource consists of 12 high-level, short answer and essay questions that will do more than just ask your students to regurgitate information. See the thumbnail images for sample questions.

This product .zip file includes:

  • A student movie guide, PDF print version (5 pages)
  • An answer key (5 pages) is included, however, some answers will vary as students are encouraged to construct their own meaning throughout the film and many questions are open-ended.
  • A Google Slides Version of the Movie Guide
  • A generic movie guide permission slip (1 page)
  • CCSS alignment indicating standards met, PDF (1 page – see also preview image)
    • CCSS Note: I’ve taken the liberty of aligning certain reading standards with the act of consuming content via the movie instead. Although students aren’t reading they are asked to perform the same cognitive functions on the content that they consumed from the movie.

Google Classroom Distance Learning Tips:

    1. Create an assignment using the Google Slides
    2. Use the screen sharing tool on your conference calling software to play the movie
    3. Pause the movie at each question to give students time to write/discuss
    4. Make sure students input their name, so when you open your copy of the form, you can see each student’s individual response they submitted
    5. Note: If you are using the movie guide for multiple classes and want to separate responses by class, create multiple copies of the google form with file names such as [Title]MovieGuideClassPeriod[2] and then create assignments for each copy of the Google Slides movie guide
