AP English’s Societies Transcend Everyday Life

Cats, tree houses, princesses, Woodstock, and government dictatorships have no obvious similarities. However, these items made up a various assortment of themes for the 11th grade AP English Transcendental Society project. Students created Utopian communities based on transcendental ideas.

These ideas focused on individualism and oneness with nature. Ideas such as conformity and trying to create a hierarchy go against everything transcendentalism stands for.

On February 25th, the projects were on display in the MPR during activity period. Parents and faculty were delighted to see the many different displays. Some displays had different foods that represented their communities. Family, faculty, and friends voted for their favorite society before leaving. The group with the winning society gets bonus points on their project. It was definitely a successful event!
