A. Preparation to write – Spend some time observing the “village of Keiser University.” Make notes regarding what is important around here. Thoreau mentions places like the post‑office and the bank. What are the comparable “vitals” of this place? What criteria are you using to assess relative importance? What do your assessments say about what this community values? About whom it values?
