In this ongoing assessment, students will demonstrate their understanding of the tenets of Transcendentalism by analyzing informational texts—news articles—in order to investigate how well we incorporate transcendental values into our society today. A great text-to-world activity in any Transcendentalism literature unit!
Pair with my Current Events Speed-Dating Lesson to get students sharing and talking about what they learned about our world and how it relates to Transcendentalism.
