Event Description

Let your students learn with the world, not just about the world!

The purpose of this project is the development of a global, collaborative classrooms project which will provide a context for students to:

* Develop knowledge, skills and habits conducive to excellent health
* Practice habits of responsible citizenship - locally to globally
* Develop Global Competencies by studying "with" the world instead of "about" the world
* Develop critical 21st Century Skills
* Become engaged in a rigorous, relevant and real-world project
* Engage the knowledge within the disciplines through research, problem solving and application
* Learn - as opposed to memorizing then forgetting discrete facts


The initial sources of inspiration for this project were the book, Hungry Planet - What the World Eats, which is both a beautiful and profound essay on the people of our planet and the food they eat; the Edible Schoolyard Project where students grow and cook their own food, as many of the content standards are taught through this project; Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, in which the goal is to change school lunch programs worldwide by providing fresh, healthy foods; Richard Louv's book, Last Child in the Woods, an excellent compilation of research on the relationship of being in nature to the physical and emotional health of children and the direct impact on a student's academic achievement; and the One Day on Earth film project, in which the goal is to create a documentary of one day on Planet Earth, and to include film footage from every country in the world.

Brainstorming the possibilities for participation by teachers and students from PK-20, as well as the participation of chefs, scientists, anthropologists, mathematicians, health care providers, historians, archaeologists, filmmakers, architects, environmentalists and many other experts, we began to develop a framework for the project. We developed strands of curriculum, or Issues and Themes, based upon the connections we derived from the overall theme of Food and Culture.

Note: This project is not just for Family and Consumer Science classes - it is designed to be utilized by nearly every course, content area and grade level, PreK to PhD.

Indonesian teachers and students visited our school and learnt how to make Thai food "Som Tam".

It's such a great project and I try to encourage my students to be aware of what they are eating. I like the quote "You are what you eat". I would like to share about Thai food, healthy food related to our Thai literature which I created by using 280slides.
