This lesson is the third of four in which you’ll study the story of Anthem, chapter by chapter, and analyze the character of its hero, Equality 7-2521. You’ll cover Chapters 5, 6 and 7, in which Equality 7-2521 rediscovers the secret power of a lost relic from the ancient past. His discovery leads to a dramatic confrontation with leaders of his society and forces him to face the full, terrible reality of his society’s ideals.

Spoiler alert: This lesson assumes that students have read Anthem.
