A small book with a big message; amazing how literature can capture concepts that are still prevalent and relevant a century later.
Anthem was one of my favorite books growing up. It‘s a dystopian SF novel that focuses around a character who‘s “different” than the rest of his society. I would highly recommend this book as a guided reading because some parts are hard to understand based off of the pronouns the characters use- everyone is we or us because there is no individuality in the society. Using ESOL 13 with students would help with comprehension before and after reading.
