1. The transition from adolescence to adulthood involves developing a personal identity, a sense of self. (a) Write a paragraph that describes you and explains what makes you uniquely you. Consider your future goals and dreams; what you value in a friend; favorite pets; preferred sports and hobbies; best-loved music, literature, movies, etc. Discuss with your group how and why you chose these values. Focus on the role of the individual mind in developing values (i.e. how did you decide what parts of society to believe in and follow). Remember that without a mind to think, to judge, to choose —there can be no personal values and ambitions. (b) Which of your personal values, goals and loves would be allowed in the society portrayed in Anthem ? Why would any of them be forbidden? 2.

Why would dictatorial leaders enforce this living arrangement? Consider and draw a connection to Harrison Bergeron and any other related texts you have read. 3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
