Just a friendly reminder--today is the last day to turn in your comment on the 1st question on the Reading Workshop blog! It is worth 75% today but will be worth nothing tomorrow, so make sure you get that in! I am missing about 16 answers!
Today we are going to begin our background information about Transcendentalism. We will focus on the 5 Ws (Who, What, Where,When Why) of this era including how it was born from Romanticism (don't worry, we'll talk about what that is too). We will also discuss the 5I's of Romanticism and Transcendentalism.
If you are absent today, you should read through this presentation Romanticism & Transcendentalism and take notes on the 5 Ws and the 5 Is.
This should take the entire period, but if by chance we finish early, you will have the extra time to free read.
See you in class!
