Reflection: Exit Tickets Responding To Emerson: Understanding Point-Of-View - Section 3: Two-Minute Warning: Wrap-Up and Exit Slip


Students' exit tickets provided a wide variety of perspectives on Emerson, which is what I'd hoped for: I do not want to teach students "one correct way" to read Transcendental philosophy, but rather provide them with the opportunity to select their own. As has been common the past few years, students are gravitating toward the corporate character and the rough-and-tumble character. I have wondered if, because of the demographics of the community, the former is most  familiar and the later the furthest from their experiences.
