I will be offering a 2-hour workshop at the upcoming THESA Conference in Coquitlam on October 25, 2013. The purpose of this workshop is to learn about the Food Literacy framework and its potential to be used within the school curriculum. It will emphasize the usefulness of incorporating hands-on learning into the classroom, as well as the importance of empowering the students to use critical thinking and discussion to learn about the world and its issues that are happening around them. Please see this link for more information.
After many discussions about this Food Literacy program, I’ve finally designed a conceptual framework. This framework effectively demonstrates the transdisciplinary approach that Food Literacy takes, along with an emphasis on hands-on learning. Please check it out: Food Literacy Template – Schofield
