PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This engaging lesson helps students connect with the ideas and beliefs of Transcendentalism and compare these ideas to the modern day Tiny House Movement. They engage with Emerson and Thoreau and apply their knowledge to real-world English skills. This lesson can accompany the works of Emerson, Thoreau, and Into the Wild OR just Emerson and Thoreau. I've made two different comparison charts so that you can use the one you need.

You will get:
1 well-designed Prezi to hook students into the lesson
1 comparison chart to use either during reading or after reading of Emerson's Self-Reliance and Nature and Thoreau's Walden
1 comparison chart to use either during reading or after reading of Emerson, Thoreau, and Into the Wild
3 real-world English project choices
3 corresponding informational texts with a close reading strategy
1 rubric to grade projects
4 Aligned Common Core standards

STOP! Would you rather have an entire unit to use with Into the Wild? This lesson is included in my unit here:
