Our “Read to Respond” series addresses the current climate of misinformation by highlighting articles and books that encourage thoughtful, educated debate on today’s most pressing issues. This post focuses on environmentalism and climate change in light of Earth Day and the March For Science, a international series of rallies uniting scientists, science enthusiasts, and concerned citizens against recent anti-environmentalist legislation. Read, reflect, and share these resources in and out of the classroom to keep these important conversations going.
