“Teaching the Energy Transition” will examine how we bring history to bear on ongoing and future energy transitions. Teachers with experience in different classroom settings will discuss using historical sources to teach a subject with urgent contemporary ramifications. Panelists will further consider environmental historians’ responsibility to students who are coming of age under the shadow of climate change, the politics of analyzing energy transitions in the classroom, and pedagogical innovations in the realm of energy and environmental history. The panel additionally will introduce Energy History Online, a free new educational website serving teachers and students of United States and global energy history.
