PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There is a “true” reality that transcends, or goes beyond, the physical world. People will find truth within themselves, not through logic, religion or the senses. Nature is a doorway to the spiritual world... classic Transcendental theories.

Included in this 7 page document are excerpts from Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Self Reliance", with an assignment of discussion questions and a motivational poster project for students to complete. Students are asked to discuss the meaning of the verse preceding the essay and to highlight 5 sentences from the essay that stand out to them, and then asked to annotate what you think the sentence means, and why the sentence stands out to them.

The second assignment asks students to choose one quotation from Emerson’s essay and turn it into a motivational poster. On the front of the poster, students include a quotation from Emerson’s essay and and an image that helps to convey the meaning of the quotation. On the back of the poster, they write a paragraph that explains what they think the quotation means and why the quotation stands out for them.
