What Others Think

I thoroughly enjoyed riding in the H.G. Wells and LEM ONE. Walking on another planet was extraordinary, but Mr. Draeger needs to lighten up. He’s kind of uptight for a guy who owns a time machine.

—Henry David Thoreau

Do you like to walk? If you don’t you may decide to give it a try after reading “Walking,” a well-known essay by Henry David Thoreau. Learn the art of walking and sauntering to impress your friends and family. Plus, walking is completely free!

  • About Glen Draeger

In addition to the unabridged text of Thoreau’s essay, this volume for students in grades 7-12 includes a “Pre-Flight,” a short introduction to read before the essay, a “Wrap-Up”, a more in depth explanation and discussion of the essay, to be read after.

Mr. Draeger also takes Thoreau to the Andromeda Galaxy in “Life in the Universe.” Owning a time machine and a space ship has its advantages.

Also included are open-ended, Socratic discussion questions to help students think more in depth about the essay. And it hasn’t stopped yet. There are memes. These are not your ordinary, social media memes. Many of them are created so that your students will be exposed to great art. Great literature. Great Art. What could be better? How about memes your students can create? Yes, that’s included too.

And still, there’s more! You’ll want to write home about this one, there’s also a photo of Thoreau! It’s okay, don’t worry about it, you can thank me later.
