There are three sections left in "Economy:" namely: Education, Money and Work, and The Fallacy of Philanthropy--all sections and themes that are full of thought-provoking (and controversial) ideas. We will read and discuss each section, and you will be required to write three more reading responses, and you will be required to "show" active reading (including annotations) for each section in your ibooks texts.
The essay will be titled: "A Response to Thoreau: The Major Themes and Assertions in "Economy." The essay will include personal narrative paragraphs which can (and should) draw on the work already in your reading journals, as well as detailed literary analysis paragraphs created using my rubric of the same name. We will begin our essay after our trip to Walden Pond on Tuesday, October 28.
