Thoreau Soapstone– “Where I Lived and What I Lived For”
Complete a soapstone on the essay after listening to the podcast, (directions on “Newsflash” page) and after reflecting on the excerpt documenting Thoreau’s memorable self-reliant exercise in the woods. Remember that while Emerson wrote beautifully and idealistically about revolt and self-realization, Thoreau was “about that life.” He lived out his philosophy. I wonder what you think of about that fact.
Your soapstone should contain one summary paragraph–remember what must be included–and one personal reader response paragraph in which you may use “I.”
