The Now-Annual Call for Syllabi

The Forest School in High Park, Toronto (13 June 1917), Library & Archives Canada

It’s a new school year – new lunchbox, new pencils, new syllabi!

Like last year, if you’ve got new classes in or involving environmental history, we’d like to hear from you. It’s a great way of sharing ideas – for material, topics, activities, and readings – and seeing how the field is taught differently across the continent.

If you would be willing to archive a copy of your syllabus on our Teaching Materials page, please get in touch via the website or in the comments below.

And if you’d like to write a short post about your class for The Otter, or an issue you’ve encountered in teaching environmental history, or a great set of resources, please let us know.

    An idea for a course or set of courses: what if we crowd-sourced a digital annotation of Thomas Berger’s _Northern Frontier, Northern Homeland_, which is due to celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2017? The annotations could be generated as a class project, and the scope of that project could vary on a class-by-class basis. Some graduate level classes could do more text/ more in-depth annotations, undergraduate classes focused on the north could do more than survey classes, and so on. There may be even be regionally-specific annotations or the possibility to bring in material from the technical and community hearings. It may be a fun way to remember the importance of Berger’s Inquiry and the resulting book as a public process of engagement and evaluation.
