This is the first essay that I have my AP Language students write for the year. Much like the first essay they will write on the AP exam, this question asks them to take information from a variety of sources they read over the course of the unit.
The sources are:
- Self Reliance by Emerson
- Allegory of the Cave by Plato
- Scarlet Letter by Hawthorne
- Into the Wild by Kraukaer
- Civil Disobedience by Thoreau
