All Summer in a Day

All Summer in a Day

This week in class, we’re reading “All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury.

In this classic Ray Bradbury short story, the children on planet Venus wait to see the sun for the first time in seven years.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Fear & Paranoia, Honor & Courage, and Loneliness & Isolation as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

“How does fear drive action?”, “What does it mean to be brave?”, and “What does it mean to feel alone?”

“Is it sometimes better to hide parts of ourselves so we can fit in?” “If someone doesn’t fit in, is it their fault?”
