Consider the excerpts we have read from Thoreau:  Civil Disobedience and Walden.  Consider the ideas that Thoreau has set forth in these works and the list of themes/ideas you received in your class notes on Thoreau.

Which of Thoreau’s ideas do you agree with (look at the list)?  Why?  Which of Thoreau’s ideas/themes do you disagree with?  Why?

Share your ideas in TWO paragraphs of 6-10 sentences.  Compose one idea on the ideas you agree with, and compose one paragraph on the ideas you disagree with.  Provide examples from the texts and/or modern day events/examples to help support your ideas.

Take a moment to think about the candidate website or websites you viewed.

Please share your thoughts!  Thanks!
