Using Food to Connect the Dots Across the High School Curriculum

The Food System has the potential to increase student engagement, and therefore achievement, by bringing relevance and rigor to your lessons.  Why stop there?  The complex nature of most authentic learning experiences provides many opportunities to further enhance student learning through cross-curricular connections.  This workshop will provide teachers and prospective teachers the background and tools to begin the process of creating engaging, experiential units in their respective discipline, using the food system and the concept of sustainability as a vehicle for curricular integration.

 Presenters include:

  • Luke Foley, Alternative Program Teacher, Northfield High School
  • Tom Sabo, Science Teacher Montpelier High School; Executive Director, Center for Sustainable Systems
