Your students will get a kick out of this fun magazine-style quiz that determines just how transcendental they are! Transcendentalism can be a confusing concept, but this quiz will scaffold their understanding of this literary movement.

Key words: Transcendentalism, Transcendental, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau
