Students are exploring the early nineteenth century literary movement of Transcendentalism through foundational texts by Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Using this knowledge, students become transcendentalists themselves using sensory observational techniques to explore their own environments. Culminating their learning is research into climate change and the ways in which their environment(s) might change in the future. Their final product is a journal consisting of sketches, observational notes, and a personal climate pledge that integrates standards from ELA, US History, Biology, Environmental Science, and Art.
