A fun project that takes a modern twist on an "old" topic! After studying Transcendentalism and its principles (see my American Transcendentalism Notes) students embark on a project in which they look for transcendental thought in modern culture.
This three part project has them look for transcendentalism in 1) comics 2) music 3) artwork
This project was a HUGE success in my class and I even had once student tell me he has become much more reflective because it. Can't beat feedback like that!
