If you had the chance to attend the first History Lunch Pop-Up with Dr. Ruth Sandwell on January 22nd, you might be interested in reading more by Dr. Sandwell on the topic of energy and climate change. We’ve posted links to resources and further readings below, and invite you to leave a comment with your own reading suggestions! We’ll continue to post resources and readings after the other history pop-up lunches in this series, organized by faculty members in OISE’s Master of Teaching program.
