Product Description
This Transcendentalist ideas interactive and kinesthetic discussion activity gets students analyzing and discussing twelve important excerpts from major Transcendentalist authors Thoreau, Whitman, and Emerson as well as minor authors Hooper and Cranch. Detailed directions handouts and teacher PowerPoint will save you time and help you to introduce the activity to students. Use as an anticipation activity to help students build a framework for understanding Transcendentalist themes.

The roll and flip movement + leadership role help students to stay engage and to facilitate discussion! You will need one die and one coin per group of students. For each roll and flip combination, students will discuss the corresponding question (Heads #'s 1-6, Tails #'s 1-6) and take notes as they discuss. Repeated roll questions help to keep students thinking! After-discussion extension ideas are discussed in the teacher notes.
