Summary:
Henry David Thoreau (born David Henry Thoreau; July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an American author, naturalist, transcendentalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, sage writer and philosopher. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings.

Teaching Henry David Thoreau offers students and teachers a first of its kind introduction to Thoreau. This program presents convenient and essential information for an introduction to this famous 19th century American philosopher, writer and Intellect.

Each chapter features instructional insights by distinguished scholars. Each educator develops information about Thoreau's life and his significant ideas to create a better understanding and appreciation for this nineteenth century American writer. Individual and class projects are outlined to help discus and then write about relevant ideas.

Transcendentalist scholar and English teacher, Richard H. Baker, introduces classroom strategies for teaching Thoreau relevant for today's student environment. Employing instructional classroom techniques that have earned him accolades at Noble and Greenough School, Baker draws upon relevant issues in each Chapter to foster discussion, writing and interpretation of Henry David Thoreau who secluded himself from 1845 to 1847 at Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts.
