A 10-slide PowerPoint introduction to American Transcendentalism. The notes are simple and clear, with a red font to help scaffold students in note-taking skills. They can copy only the red words, helping them see how to pull out important information from given notes. The notes include basic information about the historical and cultural context of Transcendentalism, core tenets, three major authors, and five texts from the literary movement. This is enough information to give them context, but not so much that they are overwhelmed.
The product also includes an 8 question fill-in-the-blank quiz (25 points total) with answer key.
These notes lead into my Transcendentalism Unit Test.
