My school is located in an urban area, and many of them are low income. All receive free breakfast and lunch. Students who take my classes have chosen them as an elective and have an interest in science.
The classes I teach are designed to give students an additional science experience and explore topics more in depth.
Through these classes students are challenged to work in teams, make decisions, and explore through scientific investigations. Many students leave the class with a new view of science and its possibilities.
In this new course, Food and the Environment, students will investigate how and where the food they eat is produced. The aim to is show students that the food that comes from the grocery store has its own story and impact on the environment. This book, The Omnivore's Dilemma, will be the cornerstone of the course and be the starting point for labs, debates, discussion, and research. Through the book and further investigations students will be challenged to consider what they are eating and where it comes from in order to become responsible consumers of food, stewards of the environment, and future decision makers.
