Product Description

This is a mini-unit for an 11th grade American Literature class.

This comes with a PowerPoint which informs students about vigilantes, comes with YouTube videos that contain trailers to many popular vigilante shows and movies (The Dark Knight, The Punisher, Daredevil, and V for Vendetta) and then also showcases some real life vigilantes. Students interact during this PowerPoint presentation, sharing out their own thoughts and ideas. This leads them into reading a couple articles (also included) that outline the pros and cons of vigilante justice.

Also included are question sheets for students to answer in regard to Thoreau's "Civil Disobedience" and Emerson's "Self-Reliance."

This mini-unit is capped off with a Socratic Seminar in which students will discuss whether or not they think the transcendentalists would have supported vigilantes, using evidence from the text to back up their ideas.

Filled in sheets for teachers are included. This comes with an argument framing that the transcendentalists WOULD have supported vigilantes, as well as the argument that they WOULD NOT have supported vigilantes.

This work I put together for my students really helped them become much more engaged in transcendentalist writings.
