This lesson will introduce the text (and the author if they are unfamiliar with Thoreau) to the students and provide a structure for them to begin thinking about what Thoreau is arguing. They will leave the classroom with a clear understanding of the central themes and ideas in the passage and will be able to explicate those ideas in writing. This lesson relies heavily on guided small-group discussion followed by students sharing out in a whole-class setting. Special Materials: Students will need individual copies of the text and of the student guided notes. You may also want to provide them with dictionaries (one per group or pair).
