US Grade 6
Beginner Level
Course Social Justice Learning Objectives​:
Students will understand that Food Justice is about communities exercising their right to grow, sell, and eat
healthy food.
Students will understand that healthy food is fresh, nutritious, affordable, culturally-appropriate, and grown
locally with care for the well-being of the land, workers, and animals.
Students will develop a scientific understanding of foods and their impacts on our bodies and physical health.
Students will create healthy snacks and meals while being aware of the physical and social impact of food
consumption on their bodies and on their communities.
I have a masters degree in education and have taught this class to middle school aged children, for several years, in NYC public school after school programs, and felt that it had a positive impact on students relationship with food. I believe that food is an integral part of our daily social lives and has a huge impact on our health. Providing young learners with knowledge about food and food systems so that they can make informed decisions is a crucial life skill. As a mother and homeschooler of growing teenage boys, I am constantly educating myself and them on food systems and trying out new ingredients and food preparation methods. 
I will provide a class outline and weekly notes. Students should also be equipped with a notebook and pen or pencil for additional note taking. Students will need to purchase food supplies and ingredients if they wish to prepare recipes at home (not mandatory). The supply list and schedule will be provided upon registration.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Parental guidance may be necessary for allergy exposure, as well as managing kitchen equipment.
