Mr. Cook's English 10B

Blocks 5,6,7: 2/3; Blocks 1,2: 2/4

2/3 and 2/4

We continued our reading of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 in class, and students will finish reading Part One for homework to prepare for the Part One quiz next class.


At the beginning of the class, we reviewed the literary terms paradox, situational irony, foreshadowing, pun, personification, and symbol on a looping powerpoint you can see here:

We then remembered and created examples from Fahrenheit 451 to begin an extra credit contest we will continue.

Questions while reading or doing homework?

Ask for a pass to see Mr. Cook during 3rd block SRT.

You can also ask for a pass to get help at the tutor lab in room A-525.

Tips for Mr. Cook's Class

If you have a reading assignment, you will most likely have a quiz when returning to class. Take notes while reading to help your comprehension, and you can also use them on the quiz.

Keep your assignments. Many of them will be quite helpful on the reading quizzes, and all of them will help you study for tests.


When absent, complete the assignments and activities on these fliers. If you need help or further directions, ask Mr. Cook for help as soon as you return to school.


Late assignments are marked down 50%, so be sure to turn all assignments in on time.
