STRUCTURE: Paragraph 1: Introduction: Provide background on the topic/modern issue you selected; create a bridge between that background the tenets of Transcendentalism; in your thesis (1-2 sentences), answer the prompt. Paragraph 2: Body: Using the readings, analyze how one tenet of Transcendentalism may apply to your prompt. Paragraph 3: Body: Again, using the readings, analyze how an additional tenet of Transcendentalism may apply to your prompt.

Your entries should look like this (the hanging indent should be larger on the second line): Emerson, Ralph Waldo. “Nature.” The Heath Anthology of American Literature, edited by Paul Lauter, 14th ed., vol. B,          Boston, Ma, Wadsworth Cengage Learning, 2014, pp. 1825–1854.
