Assignment #2

Creative Project

Create a project that reflects your own personal response to American environmental history. Your project should have both historical authenticity and environmental content. Include an index card with your project describing (a) its historical context and (b) its environmental content. Examples: an elaboration of your personal environmental history; a short play; one or more poems, paintings, or sculptures; a series of cartoons or jokes; a musical offering; an environmental history of your home town or region in words or pictures; preparation or planting of historical or ethnically authentic foods; a restored or reconstructed piece of technology; a journal of personal responses to the readings; another project of your own imagination.

Sign up for a chapter in Major Problems in American Environmental History during section in week 2. Turn in a proposal for a creative project based on that chapter during section in week 3.
