Life With Principle: FILM COMPONENTS

LIFE WITH PRINCIPLE: THOREAU'S VOICE IN OUR TIME allows for great flexibility in teaching and programming. This film can be viewed in its entirety in 56 minutes. Because it is divided into six thematic sections, it can also be used one section at a time along with the corresponding sections from the Study Guide and Thoreau Curriculum. Each section contains a short introduction about Thoreau's ideas and contemporary interviews to spur discussion about the significance of those ideas for our own lives and choices.

Hearing that Different Drummer; Being Awake, Aware, and Alive;

Examining Desperate and Deliberate Lives; Living in Society; Living in Nature;

Confronting the Mean and the Sublime

The cost for the complete package, with all the features described above, is $250. This provides a full site license for your school.
