What teachers say about our Free Books to Teachers Campaign
"I have been teaching Rand’s novels for years and students have always had to buy the novel to participate. This will enable me to teach it to even more of my students. Thanks so much."
—Silver Creek, New York
"I’ve been trying to attain copies of Anthem for several years from my district, but with recent budget cuts statewide, I have been blocked again and again for the last five years. I really would appreciate ARI’s assistance."
—Rio Linda, California
"Thank you so much for this. . . . You don’t know how amazing this is."
". . . these are the novels the kids of America need! Keep up the great work!"
"You are truly one phenomenal group."
"I have taught Anthem in the past to at-risk students and found it a worthy antidote to the gang/totalitarian mentality."
—Long Island, New York
"Thank you for this offer. I teach in a rural East Texas school and my students would not have this opportunity to study [The Fountainhead] if it were not for this offer."
"Thanks for the opportunity—Now I can require my students to write the essay for the contest!"
—Traverse City, Michigan
"I’ve taught Anthem for three years and The Fountainhead for two. Students love them! So much in fact, they hate to return them."
—Kinston, North Carolina
"I am thrilled to receive this offer! We don’t have much of a budget for new books in inner-city schools. Thanks!"
"A large thank you for those who have made this possible for teachers."
"[The Fountainhead] provoked much class discussion. One student said it encouraged her to stand up to her parents on her career choice. I like the idea of individualism and independent thinking. It is a well-written piece of literature."
—An 11th-grade teacher
"I like the thorough teacher’s guide. I believe her books are contemporary classics."
"The students loved this novel. They were intrigued from the beginning to the end. The word spread and I had students from other classes coming in to borrow the book. I think it rates as an all time favorite."
"I love teaching the story because it forces students to think on their own."
