Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Within the past two centuries, as world population has grown eight-fold, societies have left their indelible marks on the planet’s landscape. Our agricultural and industrial footprints and growing urbanization and deforestation have changed ecosystems and the atmosphere. In this hands-on session, combining geography with world history, engage in activities such as concept-mapping, cooperative group problem solving, graphing and analysis, role-playing simulations and resource-allocation games to explore how people have changed Earth’s landscape over the past 200 years and what may lie ahead for the next century. Receive lesson plans and guidance on using interactive, online resources to apply these ideas in your own classroom.
