room 2209.png

Hi.

I'm a high school English teacher who has taught in Title 1 schools for the majority of my career. Disillusioned by the high demands and apathy displayed by my students, I started creating lessons that were high interest and engaging for even the most indifferent student. I realized that if I had once felt burnt out and hopeless, other teachers were feeling the same. It is my hope that Room 2209 can be a lifeline to teachers who are struggling or just looking for something new.

Resources for Teaching Anthem by Ayn Rand

Before I create a unit, I always create a Pintrest board to generate ideas. I find that it’s the easiest way for my chaotic mind to organize something as complex as lesson building. Anything and everything I find that relates to the topic goes onto the board. I then filter through relevant materials and start to build a calendar from there.

Below, you’ll find the board that I used in my preparation to teach Anthem by Ayn Rand. I hope you find it helpful.

Thank you and happy teaching!
