Students will begin class by selecting a new name for the week from a list of given options on the board. These names are a reflection of those found in the novella Anthem that we will begin reading. Students will create a name tent to be used in class each day with their new name on it.
We will then have a brief overview of the author Ayn Rand and her background. Students are then going to make a prediction about the book based on the summary on the back as well as the cover art.
Finally, we will read chapter 1 and discuss as a class.
