This is the first vocabulary list for our Fahrenheit 451 Unit. It is posted to Vocabulary.com here. To access, review, and practice the vocabulary list for "The Tell-Tale Heart", follow the procedure below. Watch this video if you need help getting started.

  1. Go to www.vocabulary.com.

  2. Click on “Login” in the top right-hand corner of the page.

  3. Choose the option “Login with Facebook” and enter the required information (make sure you are signed in as you and not someone else). If you don't have a Facebook account, register to create a Vocabulary.com account.

  4. After you have logged in, go to http://www.vocabulary.com/lists/251203#view=notes. The list is titled "Fahrenheit 451," Vocabulary from Part 1: The Hearth and the Salamander.

  5. Now you have found the vocabulary list. On this page, first click “Review” to view the words on the list and see their definitions, learn how to pronounce them, and read how they are used.

  6. If you feel you are ready (or just want to give it a try,) click on “Learn this List” and then "Practice". This feature will ask you questions and you get to try to answer. The website tracks your progress and keeps quizzing you until you have mastered all of the words. As long as you are logged in, it will show you the percentage you have mastered (top-right). This is what you need to show me to get your award. This list is worth double the award, so work hard! Just take a screenshot or picture of the percent on the screen and mail it to me (or log in and show me at school) to get credit.
