Event Description

Food is culture - Introducing the newest, most exciting global classrooms project online to date! Join now, and be prepared to get your students engaged, motivated and learning with this platform for rigorous, relevant and real-world curriculum.

Can you imagine how excited and motivated your students will be as they collaborate with students in classrooms in other countries? We will provide you with many ideas for class, whether you're PK, high school or university. This entry point - food - has been the common factor in socialization and community building for thousands of years. But we don't have to stay focused just on food. This unit will expand into many directions, and you and your students will choose which possibilities to explore.

While younger students will focus on getting to know and love nature, gardening, cooking, nutrition and fitness, as well as cultural studies, the development of multiple literacies (such as financial literacy, media literacy, ecoliteracy and many more) older students will also be able to explore McDonaldization, Media Literacy, Whole Foods (a gourmet grocery store), health issues, hunger, cultural similarities and differences, traditions, economics, agriculture, food production, law, environmental studies, cookbooks, literature, celebrations of life and death and everything in between - all these topics and many more are connected to Food and Culture.

Everyone eats. People around the world differ in many ways, but dinner unites us all.

Hi Anne,  What's your timeline?   Our school is looking for some challenge projects for students who need to go beyond the curriculum and this would be a great project.

Have you completed this? I am just starting a unit with some fourth graders and would like to find some folks to talk about this very topic.

During three summers spent researching this book, I loved learning fifa 15 coins about forgotten greats who played before my time—guys with whom I had no history whatsoever—and how after-the-fact portraits of them were colored by a collection of anecdotes and stories that always skewed one of six possible ways from players, coaches, and reporters who were there.Gushing overcompensation.
