This 16-slide PowerPoint presentation will help you introduce the major concepts of Transcendentalism to your students. It includes biographical information about Ralph Waldo Emerson, famous quotes from Emerson and Thoreau, the philosophies that influenced Transcendentalism, and the basic beliefs. I've also included photographs from around New England. There's even a "quiz" that students can take to see where they fall on the Transcendentalist continuum.
