How can we bring everyday objects into our history classes to engage students in learning about the past?
What is the Source?
What is the Story? (Podcast)

Join Dr. Madeleine Mant (University of Toronto) as she shows an egg-cellent source’s connection to the 1942 Canadian Food Guide. Dr. Mant uses the egg to show us how we can use everyday objects as an entry point to teach students about the past, their own positionality, and how health history is all around us.

We also talked about the 1942 Canada’s Official Food Rules and Dr. Mant’s assignment outlined in Synapsis.

What keeps me excited about coming back to these classes is the chance to work with diverse students and see what objects they choose to learn about the past. - Dr. Madeleine Mant
