TFC Presents IDOF Curriculum at TC Academic Festival

The Tisch Food Center will be hosting a workshop on the new In Defense of Food Curriculum at the upcoming Teachers College Academic Festival on Saturday, April 2. 

Introducing the In Defense of Food Curriculum!

How can we help young people think critically about food? Come to this session and learn about the Tisch Food Center's new In Defense of Food Curriculum, a companion to the PBS documentary based on Michael Pollan's book. The curriculum engages students through film clips, preparing delicious recipes, creating performance poetry, and participating in peer-to-peer learning to investigate the question, “What should I eat to be healthy?” As they progress through the 10 lessons, they discover what Pollan means by his now-famous answer: Eat Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants.

During this workshop, participants will get to try activities from the curriculum, watch film clips, and discuss how it can be adapted for various ages and audiences.

Presenters: Dr. Pamela Koch and Claire Uno, Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education & Policy
