This course studies the relationship between humans and the natural environment as reflected in selected literature on themes such as portrayal of landscapes, sense of place, sustainability, and the changing environment and its effects on human experience. Course work includes critical thinking skills related to interpreting the significance of the action, characters, themes, and literary devices used by the author. Emphasis is placed on writing, both as a way of discovering ideas and as a way of expressing knowledge of the reading material. Students are expected to be actively engaged in responding to the literature. As students read, discuss, and write about the literature, they should gain a better understanding of themselves and the world in which they live.
