This unit examines the history of American landscape painting and photography from the early nineteenth century to the present. Its goal is to develop a heightened awareness of the significance of America's wilderness, geologic wonders, agricultural abundance, and ecological diversity in shaping the nation's social, cultural, and political history.
* A 27-minute video presents landscape paintings and photographs and first-person accounts to explore how the nation's social, cultural, and political history shaped our land and landscape. Topics include the wilderness, transportation, land management and agriculture, and the industrial landscape.
* A 56-page study guide provides background information for chronological units on historical stages of interaction with the land, from exploration of uncharted territories to historical and modern debates on land ownership and management issues.
* Accompanying the guide is a 32-page workbook with reproducible worksheets containing excerpts from literary and historical documents and critical-thinking activities. * Fifteen 8.5 x 10.5-in. color reproductions of paintings and photographs supplement the guide and workbook. Video (closed captioned), prints, workbook, and teacher's guide
