Description

This project focuses on the development of two interactive lesson plan modules which address domestic food waste and international food waste. Each module is one to two weeks in length and intended for grades 9-12. The domestic food waste lesson focuses on each sector of the U.S. food system, from production to consumption. The international food waste lesson plans focuses on students researching and presenting information on waste in a country of their choice. Both plans contain an introduction, student-centered activities, lessons, discussions, potential solutions and assessments, all of which are targeted toward participatory learning. The lesson plans initially were developed while taking university classes and then were edited during the student teaching experience so that they better reflect an active classroom environment. The result is a student centered lesson plan, which allows the students to learn about and experience the issue of food waste.
