English 10 Final Exam

People too often see the world as a place of unlimited resources, rarely considering that their actions have a direct effect on everything around them. The environment influences life and shapes human feelings and opinions. These focus questions present opportunities for students to explore human relationships with and responsibilities to the world of which they are a part.

The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
– William Wordsworth
