This engaging Transcendentalism lesson plan helps students connect with the ideas and beliefs of Transcendentalism and compare these ideas to the real world. Students engage with Emerson and Thoreau and apply their knowledge to a project-based learning assignment.
You will get:
⭐1 Tiny House Project choice
⭐1 Game Room Project choice (PLEASE READ WARNING NOTE BELOW
⭐1 School House Project choice
⭐1 Research guide for each choice
✅This handouts can be printed or used digtially in Google Classrooms, Microsoft Classrooms, or any LMS.
⚠️ The game room choice requires technology. You will also need to request a single FREE
educator's license to play this game. You will need to request discounted licenses
for students to play. If you ONLY want a lesson plan for this game, you can find this single project choice for free on my blog here: Turn up Transcendentalism
. If you are assigning this project last minute or if you can't purchase the game for students, you can toss the game room choice and give students the other two options.
⚠️If you are the type of teacher who likes (or needs!) to provide step-by-step assignments, this resource is not for you.
I have purposly created this resource to promote problem solving and creativity. Students are responsible for their own research and project plan. The guides in the file will help structure their research, but they must think and create for themselves. I do not provide any student examples.
That being said, I think you will be AMAZED at what your students come up with!
✅If you are coming to this resource from an old pin, I have recently updated it. The first editoin includes 3 projects that are all tiny house related. I have added the old file to the new file in case this previous style of project better fits your needs.
✋STOP! Before you purchase this resource, you might find that you are looking for an ENTIRE Transcendental Unit plan. If this is the case, you can find it below. It INCLUDES this project.
