Student interns are working with Peter Crownfield to complete a guide and resources for teaching about the food system in the classroom. The guide is designed for K-12 teachers & students, and will include a guide to the history of our current food system, what a better & more sustainable food system would look like, and ideas for activities to engage students. (It will also include a guide to help students evaluate food in their own school.)
The guide is designed to help integrate food system topics into existing curriculum goals & standards, and is expected to be complete later this fall.
The Alliance completed a related project last year, focusing on teaching Climate & Sustainability. You can see this online at www.teach-climate.net, or download a PDF version from the same site.
