Students focus on the geographic and political contexts in which the 1970s energy crisis occurred. They read an additional briefing and primary source documents to gather information. Then they identify key locations in the Middle East and in the United States on a map. They use the information they gather to create a list of key geographic considerations and a list of key political considerations.
