The Anthropocene: How Social Studies Teachers Should Respond
January 4 @ 7:00 pm - 7:45 pm
Many scholars refer to the current period in human-environment history as the Anthropocene (the Age of Humans). No place on Earth is unaffected by human influences, and the pace and magnitude of environmental change are accelerating. This reality has both practical and ethical consequences for social studies educators. This session brings together ideas related to the importance of human-environment thinking in geography education and the ethics of what teachers should be doing to better prepare students for college, careers, and civic life in the Anthropocene.
