Transcript of Jea'Niya's International Reading Study

Questions:
In the book Athem, the society is the same. Everyone looks and has similar identities to each other. They can't really be different from there brothers because it's like a sin to be different in there world. The structure of there whole life is very different from others because it's unique and strange.
I would not like to live in this society becuse I think when you want everyone to look and act the same then it's a crime. the reason why it is a crime is because you are robbing a person of there creativity and uniqueness. People have a right to be different and shoulf not be forced to be just like everyone else. That is why I don't like this kind of society.
I think that maybe the reasons first reason to why the men don't reach that age because of the way that they live or the lifestyle they have. if they didn't eat what they were suppose to them that might have led to them dying at an early age. The next might be becuase the men over or gods over them did not allow them to get that old. and by this I mean they would probably kill them. They might have died from a sickness or illness that happens when you get that age. If they were committed to there religion and it said that thet couldn't be over 45 then they might have killed themselves to respect the law and follow the rule of there god. I also think they might have just this because maybe the first people of this society died at the age of 45 so that would mean that the people thought that you could go pass that certain age. They might not live that long because the number 45 might mean more than just an age. maybe it a deeper meaning than what they say. And my last one would be that they might have a curse laid upon them.
I think that way she accomplished this was by using real world and personal knowlege. Everyone knows knows that in our society we are all different and very unique. mostly becasue we were borna and raised different. But everyone has one thought in the back of there mind alot. and that is what would life be like if everyone looked like me. Constrasting that world with that fantasy world is probably one way she thyought about the topic.
I think that it was a more sinister motivation because when you think about the way he was so happy to have that job you would have to think that motivating had something to do with this because he was very happy to becasue a street sweeper and iI dont think that the other choices fit in my eyes. The reason for that is because they sick together and that would mean that there not living up to it with those ohter choices.
It takes place in the past and in the future. The book starts off in a old ancient time setting know this because of the way they explained some of the stuff and the details that were written. When they got further into the book, they started going into the future because they found things they were not suppose to find and were scared about it
No because with our teachers they want to teach you something and you get the concept right away. that makes teachers happy to kno that they are doing there job right and can move on to the next thing with there next lesson. Their teachers disaprove of this because they can't be dfferent from anyone else and they just don't like it. They think of it as a sin of something.
One way is by brain washing them with idea that they think are good but may or may ot be good things. Another way is by showing them the ways they should do things. If you teach a person to do things a certain way then they think that is the only way to do things so they think it is the right way. Persuation is one of the best ways that they could have did this to the people in the book Anthem.

Chapter I
In a well-organized paragraph, describe the society in which Anthem is set. Some areas to consider are the political structure, degree of technology, social relationships, quality of life, and education.





Would you want to live in this society? Explain why or why not.





In this chapter, Equality states that it is very unusual for men to reach the age of 45. Offer several possible explanations as to why life expectancy is so short in his society.





Clearly, Ayn Rand intended Equality to stand out from his “brothers.” Explain how she accomplishes this by contrasting Equality’s physical qualities and character traits to those of his fellow men.





Why does the Council of Vocations assign Equality 7-2521 the job of street sweeper? Is it due to error, incompetence, or a more sinister motivation? Explain.





When does this novel take place—in the past, the present, or the future? How do you know?





How would your teachers react if you had Equality’s “curse”?
Why do Equality’s teachers disapprove of his quick mind?





Chapter II
Find several examples of the ways in which this society tries to obliterate each individual’s mind (and self!) by quashing personal choices, desires, and values.





What word is Equality struggling to recapture on page 49?
In your opinion, why is mentioning this word the only crime punishable by death in this society? How does this word contradict the ideals of this society? What could its rediscovery possibly lead to?





Chapter III
What does Equality discover in this chapter?





How important is this discovery? Describe 45 ways in which it would help society, and make life easier or more enjoyable.





Outline some of the Council of Scholars’ beliefs, and Equality’s refutation of those beliefs.

Q.U.E.S.T.I.O.N. ;-)
My article is about Ancient Chinese Footbinding. This article is about the culture, history and purpose behind footbinding. The history behind it is that the art of footbinging was originated in the Han dynasty. It was first found and recorded from the court of Southern TAng dynasty in Nanjing. The art of footbinding is only for women and the process begins at a very early age. It is an extreme task and is painful. The process of footbinging is wrapping a three-to five year old girl's feet with a type of clothe, then break the bones in the toes and after that you would bend it down to the ankle and wrap it tightly. They had to walk around like this for a long period of time. The reason why people would do this is because back when it was made up they people thought it was beautiful and gave the women a sence of pride.

My Article:
My arrticle is about the 10 culture shocks cites. These places are basically special and some bizzarre because of the things they do and some of there main attractions. They talk about the places and then at the bottom they show a little information on how they try to trap the tourist. The top 10 places in order are:
10.Moscow, Russia
9.Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
8.Delhi, India 7.Beijing, China 6.Cairo, Egypt 5.Amsterdam, Netherlands 4.Havana, Cuba 3.Cape Town, South Africa 2.Bangkok, Thailand 1.Marrakech, Morocco

He discover that he people deserve to learn things and that there were a group of women that they liked and were going to take to the mating hall.
This discovery was important because it opened up some ideas for Equality. If you don't know abou something then you don't deserve to know it. and with finding out that Libery was not apart of there family was good because they could take them to the mating hall.
That you can't know more than your brother and can't really express themselves becuase they will be punished for it. If you are different from your brother because everyone is equal. Everyone there knows what everyone else knows.
I think it was about the Forest of the Discarded. They discovered that this was a forbidden place because it had something there that they were not allowed to see or hear about. I think that this is not fair becuase they should let the people do what they want and be themselves.

Chapter X
Describe the house and its contents in your own words, and explain why Liberty and Equality find it so strange and unique.
The house is had a lot of color and was not like the regular white houses. The book talked about the colors and the details with the house itself and they windows. It was two beds there with garments on the beds I think. They described the was some things in the house were shaped strangly and odd. Liberty and Equality find it so strange because they have never really seen a house like this before.
Chapter XI
What great discovery does Equality make in this chapter?
I think the great discovery that equality found was his heart or something within it. At the end of the chapter they were talking about they were looking for an answer inside their hearts or something similar to that. I think they are going to find out about their real identity and that will be the great thing they are lookin for in the book.
Explain the following quotes in your own words, and discuss how they can be applied to your life:
“Whatever road I take, the guiding star is within me.”
“For the word “We” must never be spoken, save by one’s choice and as a second thought.”
It is basically saying that whatever choices I make are my own and whatever happens happens and that something within me will guide me in the right direction hopefully. Its like saying that the choices they will make will guide them throughout life. In the next quote i think it means i think they are saying that they should not say the word "We" anymore because they are becoming their own person and do not need that word anymore unless they make the choice to do so.
What does Equality now realize is the proper goal and purpose of his life?
He realizes that he has to be his own person and that he will live the way he wants to live and be free from all the stuff that he has been through with living in the society he was in. he wants to be free and be the way everyone should be and that is free and unique. he did not own anything to his brothers and he listed a lot of things that he wanted like he didnt want to use the word we because it was a sour word or something like that.
In what ways is “I” like a God?
I really dont know what the the book means when it talks about "I" but i know that Equality was using the word I in almost every sentence in that chapter. i think he is thinking that he is a god or something like that.
Re-read the incident with the Saint of the pyre (pg. 50). What was he trying to communicate to Equality?
I think that he was trying to tell them that they could see their faces and that they finally could see what they look like after all this time. I think this was a big issue becasue the people did not wanting them to know what they looked like. I guess now that they know the truth they will leave the society for good and they want come back anymore because of all the things they have expericanced.
Chapter XII
Why do the main characters take the names Prometheus and Gaea? Why weren’t they allowed to choose their names in their old society?
Because they are now the new people on earthe like Adam and Eve. When they found freedom they were by themselves and now that they have they can make a new race of peopl and things like that .
What does Prometheus plan to do in the future?
He said that he would live where he wanted to and that he would be his own man and would live freely.
Prometheus reaches the important realization that, “To be free, a man must be free of his brothers” (118). Cite several examples from
Anthem that illustrate the truth of this statement.
That every peopn shoel be free.
http://www.salon.com/2001/05/19/sopranos_final/
MY ARTICLE:
My article is about the television show "The Sopranos". The article is talking about what role the women play in the whole idea of the show. I have never saw the show before but I do know a little bit about what the show is based on. The Sopranos are basically like a mafia and are kind of like Italian gangster. With this information I also know that the girlfriends, wifes, and other females related or connected with the men in this organization are being factors in keeping this whole mafia together. These women or companions of these mob bosses and mafia lords are the ones that are expected to know everything about what there other half is doing when it comes to the mafia. They know informantion but not in great detail. There are not allowed to say anything about this and harsh punishment will happen if they say anything about what there husbands do. In the article they show that at the begining of the show the mani charater comes out of the thighs of a bronze statue woman. I didn't really understand what they were trying to say about this but after thinking about the whole thing I came to a conclusion about this. Before the article went on the interview said that a man said he came out of his beautiful mother or something like that. I realized that the companions of these men and mother, sisters, neice are very inportant to these men. They love them because they know there deepest secrets and they know what goes on at the office. Without them who would they tell there secrets to.
Chapter IV
***Discuss the appropriateness of Equality’s new name, “Unconquered.”





**Chapter V
Equality understands that his invention will benefit mankind greatly; however, this was not his main motivation in conducting his experiments, and it is not the primary source of the great joy he experiences. Discuss.






**In your opinion, why is Equality so interested in seeing his own image at this point in the novel? What emotion is he feeling?





***Chapter VI
The old locks and lack of guards in the Palace of Corrective Detention indicate that prisoners never tried to escape. Why not?
I think that the new name that Equality is a good name because its speaking the truth at least. When they had the name Equality it didn't really have any truth in it. The reason why I say this is because they wanted everything to be the same but what is equality if it does let people do things in an equal manner in there own way.
I really don't understand what the question is asking but i think that Equality's experiment was done efortlessly and he didn't really have motivation but i think if he did it would be to change the council and the story up.
He is glad that he is going up and telling the council about what he discovered

Outline four of the Council’s reasons for rejecting Equality’s invention.






What are the real reasons behind the Council’s rejection and fear of the gift?






What does Equality mean, at the beginning of the chapter, when he says, “We are old now, but we were young this morning” (p. 68)?






Chapter VIII
What is Equality experiencing for the first time in this chapter, and what does he feel as a result?






Explain why Equality laughs when he remembers that he is “the Damned.”
What does the Uncharted Forest symbolize in Anthem?





Chapter IX
On pages 93–94, Liberty contrasts Equality to his fellow men. Paraphrase this passage.





In this chapter, Equality questions the morality of his former society. Contrast what he was previously taught about solitude, good, evil, and joy to what he now believes.
Article #5: Reflection:
I think that one of the things that make the council reject the invention that Equality wanted to show to them is because they don't what any change in the society that they have build up. another reason might be because they don't want the people learning new things and might just rebell against the Council. That might because the Coucil might be hiding things from the people. And if Equality finds out he can find out things that can break the cycle of everyone being the same.
Because they see that all the years of being equal and being the smae as everyone else is about to change because Equality is learning more than he should and might figure out that he can do more than he ha been doing all his life. Its basically the Council is afraid that they will not like the life given to them and will stray away.
That at the beginging of there lives they were okay with whatever they were told and were okay with the rules that were laid out for them to follow but now that they know what has been hidden from them for so many years, they are tired of the way things are and feel the need to change it to something that makes more sense and will be better for them.
He finds about magnetism and he is very exicted about it at first because he has found something new to show people. With that he is very scared that if he tells the coucil about this they might kill him or punish him for doing things or being different from the others. at this point he does not know how to feel about it and he is like stuck in the middle of the emotions.
I think beause he did not know what it meant at first because they dont really know what that means so he might knwo what that means. And when they talk about the forrest i think they mean thats like the real world because that is not messed with and that is basically what i think about the thing.
I dont really know what they mean in this paragraph.
Now that he knows more what is going on he is knowing how to feel about the whole thing. He is not happy with all the lies.

Local Teachers find Turkey 'in stark contrast' to stereotypes
This article is about three teachers that go back to school in different places and in Turkey. The article starts off with letting me know a little about the three teachers that went on the trip. They are talking about stereotypes like Muslim are considered terrorist because of the events that have happened in our history. I think that a place should not be judged by its backroud or the people who have made the country look bad. I don't like when people judge a certain person because of where they come from. Like if a person who was the same race as a terrorist, people would get scared and not be around them. With the three teachers they came across things like this a lot. They thought that the place would not be very fun at all. but they were wrong they had a good time and learned alot about the culture of Turkey.

Exposure to Smoking in Internationally Distributed American Movies and Youth Smoking in Germany: A Cross-cultural Cohort Study
Articles.For.Germany<3
Video.For.Thought<3
In my article, it is talking about teens smoking in Germnay. They are saying that they are smoking at an early age because of American movies spoken in German being distrubted in their country. The studies show that the average age a kid in Germany starts smoking is 10-16 years of age. With that age people are getting conserned with this and think that this is dangerous for the teens of Germany. The same thing goes on in America. We blame other peopl or things for what happens to us teens. Some people just have to understand that maybe it is not America's fault or Germany's fault. Maybe the teens deside that they are just going to start smoking on their own. They don't need a movie to influence them to start smoking unless they are really as stupid as they look. Either way they are going to smoke. Most of the movies that have soking are against it too or either saying don't do it so I don't see the problem in the movies. I have watched some movies with teens smoking and I did not smoke after I saw the movie so that means it really doesn't matter.

TO DO:
a) Ayn Rand wrote Anthem in a deliberately simple, austere style. Explain why this style is appropriate, given the novel's setting and characters below:
"We blew out the candle. Darkness swallowed us. There was nothing left around us, save night and a thin thread of flame in it, as a crack in the wall of a prison" (64).


"But International 4-8818 are different. They are a tall, strong youth and their eyes are like fireflies . . . "(26).


"[Liberty's] body was straight and thin as a blade of iron . . . Their hair was golden as the sun; their hair flew in the wind, shining and wild, as if it defied men to restrain it. They threw seeds from their hand as if they deigned to fling a scornful gift, and the earth was a beggar under their feet" (38).


"The shoulders of our Brothers are hunched, and their muscles are drawn, as if their bodies were shrinking and wished to shrink out of sight" (47).
b) Figurative language is employed effectively, if sparingly, in this novel. Often, a well-chosen simile captures the essence of a character, or the significance of an event. Discuss the meaning and significance of the following similes in Anthem:
Directions:
1) Read through the Activity and watch the video that create a memorable definition of figurative language (the learning goal of this activity)
2) Copy and paste this whole triangle into your prezi
3) Answer the questions in the spaces provided using complete sentences and quality grammar and deeper-level thinging skills
Ayn Rand wrote Anthem in diary form, using first person major point-of-view. Discuss the merits of this form and point of view for this particular novel. Consider: Why is the diary form crucial to plot and character development in Anthem? How does it help to reveal the setting and establish the nature of this society? How does it contribute to the mystery surrounding the Unspeakable Word? How would using first person minor or third person omniscient point of view weaken the novel?
Directions:
1) Learn the terms that are unfamiliar!!!! (they can be found, among others, under impotant information)
2) Respond AT LENGTH in an ESSAY. Use Google docs or Microsoft word

Resolution
In the begining of the book , we met Equality and they are a group of men that live together in a society. They have never seen how they look before or have never had individual names. Theya are refered to as We.
After meeting the Equality we started noticimg weird things about the society and they council. They were not allowed to be themselves and they all had group names. They had certain rules they had to follow. And if they didnt they would be punished.
Equality invents something new called magnetism and then wants to tell the council about it but he is scared that they might get mad or either punish him for it. With him being excited he is alo a little cared aabout it and tries to get past all of that stuff. He also means a girl too.
Conflict
Equality starts going against the rules of the council and then he starts feeling a different type of way about the rules and the way the council was set up. he started realizing the truth about everything.
He starts thinking for himself and doing things his way instead of they way he had been living. He no lonher used the word "We" like he did before. he started using the word "I" more.
At the end of the book, Equality becomes a whole new man than what he was before. He did not live for his brothers but he lived for himself. He left the council and started being independent. He finally is free from the lies and the fake life he had.
a) Ayn Rand wrote Anthem in a deliberately simple, austere style. Explain why this style is appropriate, given the novel's setting and characters below:
This style is classified as a very stern and strict way of writing and that was used in Anthem. With the concept that Ayn Rand came up with to write the book is really why this style works. The topics and ideas she comes up with are very serious and make you think about things in a different way than others would. Using that style was a smart choice because if she would have chosen a different one it might have thrown the book off.
"We blew out the candle. Darkness swallowed us. There was nothing left around us, save night and a thin thread of flame in it, as a crack in the wall of a prison" (64).
They are saying that they cut the lights out and were in the darkness and I think they were waiting or something because they say that they were saving the night for some reason and something abiut the thin line of fire might mean the way it was going away from them. Or it might mean that they would miss the little light they had.


"But International 4-8818 are different. They are a tall, strong youth and their eyes are like fireflies . . . "(26).
They are saying that International 4-8818 are different from them. This is important because they did not know what they looked like. They use figurative language by saying their eyes looked like fireflies and that means that their eyes were very bright. That might mean that they were happy men.

"[Liberty's] body was straight and thin as a blade of iron . . . Their hair was golden as the sun; their hair flew in the wind, shining and wild, as if it defied men to restrain it. They threw seeds from their hand as if they deigned to fling a scornful gift, and the earth was a beggar under their feet" (38).
He was explaining how Liberty and giving details. He mentioned almost everything there was to say about them. They were talking about how much they like Liberty and how they wanted them. You could say that they were kind of in love at first sight with Liberty.


"The shoulders of our Brothers are hunched, and their muscles are drawn, as if their bodies were shrinking and wished to shrink out of sight" (47).
They are kind of embarrassed or either ashamed about something in this part of the book. They way he said that if they could shrink they would shrink to the point that they were not seen. This tells me that they are trying to hide from someone or something. The important part of this is that they are not coming right out and saying this they are giving hints.
b) Figurative language is employed effectively, if sparingly, in this novel. Often, a well-chosen simile captures the essence of a character, or the significance of an event. Discuss the meaning and significance of the following similes in Anthem:
