Transcendentalism can be a bit dry, but this short creative writing assignment allows students to delve deeper into the values of Transcendentalism following the reading of Nature, Walden, or Civil Disobedience (aka Resistance to Civil Government). This item includes the assignment description and options, easily modified grading rubric, and a postcard "template." I typically print the postcards on cardstock.
