Transcendentalism @ the Loquacious

From Mrs. Burke …

While studying Transcendentalism, a 19th century philosophical movement, students in Ms. Burke’s class discussed the importance of non-conformity, individualism, nature, and self-reliance.  We discussed that most modern individuals do not study philosophy any more, but rather use popular music as a source of inspiration.  For our Transcendentalism booklets, students combined Transcendentalism quotes with modern music connections to reinforce the importance of themes such as government, self-reliance, individualism, and nature.  Students then wrote their own Transcendentalist-inspired poem.
