The materials provided here were developed from a workshop titled "Toxic Environments/Toxic Bodies," which took place at ASEH's Baton Rouge conference in March 2007. They include a transcript of the workshop and two teaching units: one for undergraduate students and one for high school students. An introduction to the teaching units, instructions, and historical documents are provided here. This project was funded by the National Science Foundation.
With support from the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies, Boise teacher Liz Caughlin attended ASEH's 2008 conference and worked in coordination with the ASEH Education Committee to develop a teaching unit that explores the historical interaction between people and nature in the Intermountain West. Caughlin will implement this unit in early 2009 and plans to share her results and student projects with ASEH at that time.
