847 Words4 Pages
Transcendentalism relates to freedom in several ways. Freedom is the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau are two transcendentalists that have different views on freedom. Our project, representing freedom, shows a person how to live his or her life in a way of freedom shown by Emerson and Thoreau. Together, we did research on the transcendentalists: Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. We studied these men in the essays that we learned about during class. We found some of our examples from the notes we took during class too. Youtube was used to find our video clips and music. We used clip converter to download our videos and music from youtube. The workload was split between us taking turns finding quotes, movie clips, and pictures. Jordan: Ethan and I did this project on freedom. We had struggles with getting the movie clips to download. This was the biggest problem of this project. My job in this group was to set up the first half of the imovie, putting in quotes, pictures, and movie clips. I think that we should have a few more videos in our project to enhance the viewing process. The quality of our songs were a strength in our movie project. Our group worked well with each other, and Ethan was a good partner to work with. We completed the project in a timely manner; therefore, this gave us more time to work on our essay. We did not have any issues working together.
