Honors 11: “Language” and Into the Wild

We started the day by finishing our transcendentalist poems from yesterday and turned them in with our Whitman/Thoreau/Ginsberg poem annotations. We shared out a bit–you guys are such poets! After, we talked about Emerson’s Ch. 4 of “Nature” titled “Language”. We then introduced Jon Krakauer and I gave you Into the Wild books so you could read Ch. 1 for tomorrow. We also went over any questions regarding the Scavenger Hunt.
