Engage your students like never before by hosting a virtual classroom talk and Q&A with one of our Ayn Rand experts.
Most events last for 30–60 minutes with half the time set aside for student Q&A.
If you schedule your event to take place after your students have already finished reading your Ayn Rand novel, you can expect our speakers to center the discussion around the major themes and takeaways from the story, as well as their relevance to today’s world. This type of discussion engages students’ interest and helps to convey the real-life import of the story to their own lives.
If you schedule it as more of an introduction before your students have read the book, you can expect us to do just that—provide a spoiler-free introduction to the story, its author, and its key ideas. This helps to get students invested in the characters and themes they’re going to be reading about over the coming weeks.
Our goal is to make the events as interactive as possible, so don’t be surprised if our speakers choose to ask your students some questions too! We love hearing what they think of a particular character’s actions and why he did what he did.
These events are a resource for supporting your teaching of Ayn Rand’s novels. If you have any specific topics you’d like for us to cover during your event, please let us know. We’re happy to tailor the discussion to meet your teaching needs.
