Anthem Chapter 1 Vocabulary Practice #3
Part I: Words in Context. Using your vocabulary list, fill in the blanks in the following sentences.
When the Council of Vocations passed down their life __________________________________ to
Equality, he knew his dream of becoming a scholar would never come true, as he was ordered
instead to become a Street Sweeper. Rather than being disappointed, though, he felt glad. Equality
believed his love of learning was a great sin, and saw being a street sweeper as a way to atone for
this evil desire. However, after finding the mysterious tunnel, he __________________________________ all of
the rules of his society and went there to be alone and perform experiments. Equality’s
___________________________________ for solitude and learning grew stronger each day, until he would
rather be in his tunnel learning than doing almost anything else. This thirst for knowledge, which
his society deemed a horrible _______________________________ and immoral action, became a means of
escape for Equality. In a society where “we” took the place of “I”, where one’s identity was
______________________________ from the concept of the group, Equality found a way to be his own
person.
Part II: Original Sentences. Three of the vocabulary words from your list were not included in the
passage above. Write on original sentence for each of those three vocabulary words. Make them
