From the Dust Bowl to current global climate change, from Hoover Dam to acid rain, from the 1927 Mississippi flood to Hurricane Katrina, from Native American agriculture to the recent Farm Bill, this class studies how people have used and changed the North American environment from the colonial era to the present. Through discussion exams, and essays, students will master historical material and build skills in document analysis and written argument. This class does not require a background in history.
