This poster describes the poster assignment in NRAH in the spring 2010 semester. It is a new project, and the syllabus description was just a rough draft. Marisa and Amanda and I have worked to refine and clarify the assignment. We provide the expectations, guidelines, grading criteria and resources for students to succeed.
Here is the syllabus description: 1
“You will choose a partner to work with. The two of you will select a US President and use the era of his administration as your time frame. You will research and describe the salient features of environmental history during that time period. You will also analyze and explain the importance of these features (or this era) relative to American history as a whole. For example, you might describe one or two pieces of legislation passed during the Nixon administration and explain the impact on farmland or forests. Further analysis might explain the political process involved or the social and economic implications of an environmental law. Another approach might be the description of relevant environmental impacts, and the reaction of a state or federal judiciary or legislature. The analysis might focus on a precedent set by a particular course case, or a turning point in environmental history due to a judicial case or state or federal law. One other approach would be to focus on a local-scale environmental issue or event, using a presidential administration to put the issue or event in national context.”
