With Good Reason
With Good Reason, the only state-wide radio program in Virginia, aired this interview in September of 2006. It follows up on an article I wrote about a project my students do when we study Thoreau. In addition to reading from Walden, students also take Thoreau grocery shopping with them, and in turn, use his insights to analyze all the luxuries and necessities in a grocery store.
