I used this as a Study Guide in my American Literature class. I found that students truly struggled with the concept of Transcendentalism, so I used this in various ways. I have assigned pairs of students one or two questions, and had them research together (using textbook or approved Internet sources) and create an A+ response to their assigned questions, which they would then teach to classmates in a jigsaw activity. I have also posted the questions around the room and provided sticky notes, and students rotated around the room adding to their classmates' prior answers.
This could be an excellent review for the American Lit End of Course Test.
