Honors 11: Transcendentalism Introduction

We began the day by discussing the ways in which the beginning of the unit, with the use of readings from key figures of the Transcendentalist movement, will be organized to inform our understanding of the decisions made by the “character” of our book, Chris McCandless, when he ventured to the Alaskan Wilderness, unprepared, in 1992. We started by going through this PowerPoint and taking notes. I checked the notes in for points. I also gave you this reference guide for more information.

I then gave you the rest of the hour to begin working on the timeline I assigned yesterday that is due tomorrow OR to begin reading “Civil Disobedience” by Henry David Thoreau (we also took more detailed notes on him). Read for tomorrow, but there is no need to heavily annotate or to read EVERY word. Get the gist.

If you’re going, the Macbeth showtime is at 4:20 at the Main Art Theatre at 11 Mile and Main in downtown Royal Oak.
