Overview

This resource guide looks at environmentalism through the eyes of a few significant leaders and their critics, focusing on two pivotal moments: The progressive movement of the early 20th century, as exemplified by John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt; and the environmentalism of the 1960s, which took much of its inspiration from Rachel Carson and her compelling book, Silent Spring.

Environmentalism is an increasingly visible issue that is very much on the minds of today's students. The dynamic, standards-based activities and primary sources in The Individual in History: Environmental Movement appeal to students' interest in the topic while providing a springboard to historical inquiry in the classroom. By focusing on these important moments in history, teachers can help students understand the scope of the movement as a whole, and the ways in which the resonating impact of individuals, events, and ideas continue to shape our world.
