Looking Back at History
Jim Farrell, Environmental Studies, St. Olaf College
Students research an organism/commodity in the colonial period of American history, and write a first-person narrative/autobiography of its history as European settlers reshaped the environment (mental and physical) of North America.

1908 Conservation Conference
This page is authored by Jim Farrell, St. Olaf College.
In groups, students research environmental activists of the early 20th century, and write and deliver a first-person speech expressing that person's concerns to the 1908 Conservation Conference.

My Environmental Histories
Jim Farrell, Environmental Studies, St. Olaf College
In American Environmental History, we emphasize the idea that everybody makes history every day, and that ideas and institutions have long-term environmental impacts that are often unobserved in history or in life. This final exam allows students to integrate their learning, and personalize it, seeing how their own lives are historically constructed, and how they can make history by constructing their lives differently. The exam also allows me to read papers that are academic and practical and personal, and a lot more interesting than conventional test questions.
