Lessons from the Dust Bowl: Human-Environment Education on the Great Plains
Porter, Jess
Journal of Geography, v111 n4 p127-136 2012
This article documents regional demand for human-environment educational resources via assessment of public knowledge of the environmental crisis known as the Dust Bowl. The steadily eroding knowledge-base on the topic is discussed along with the desire for enhanced Dust Bowl educational resources. Regionally focused educational activities utilizing geospatial technologies, family interviews, and repeat photography were created to help redress shortcomings in human-environment understanding of the Great Plains at a local level. (Contains 5 figures and 1 table.)
