  • Transcendentalism 101 Take out a sheet of paper. Split it in half. On the first half, please write down what you think “transcendentalism” might mean based on your prior knowledge, vocab words, and understanding of the roots of the word. You have 30 seconds to share your answer with your shoulder partner. Transcendentalism 101 How long have you lived? Please write down your answer to this question on the other half of your paper and hold it up for me to see. For the most part, you are all WRONG. Transcendentalism 101 Is there a difference between how long you have lived vs. how long you have been alive? YES! Most of you told me how long you’ve been alive. How long your heart has been beating in your chest and pumping blood. How long you have been breathing. How long you have occupied space here on this Earth. But in all that time, how long have you TRULY LIVED?!?!?! Transcendentalism 101 Take out a sheet of paper and get ready to take notes. Cornell notes, of course!  You’ll also need a separate sheet of paper to answer some questions as we go through the presentation. Introduction To Transcendentalism
