Happy Halloween and more importantly, happy day 53!
Today is your first work day on your Today's Transcendentalists Project! Your goal today is to solidify your subject and to begin your research. I will be coming around toward the end of the period to make sure that you have been making progress. Keep in mind, the project is due next Thursday, but that deadline can move closer if you're not using your work time!
I would suggest using this graphic organizer to help you organize your notes as you research. You should be able to download it and type into it.
If you are looking for text evidence in Emerson and Thoreau, "Civil Disobedience" by Thoreau is on page 388-389 in your text book, and "Self-Reliance" was in a packet that I handed out to you.
On a side note, remember to continue to read your independent free reading books!
