World Hunger: Learning to Meet the Challenge.
Joy, Carrol; Regan, Patrick
This elementary and secondary level world hunger curriculum guide is designed both to educate teachers and students in the basics of world hunger, and to guide them in organizing student groups to take action that will combat hunger. A background information section is presented in part 1, which describes who and where the hungry are, what it is like to be hungry, why we have hunger, what is being done and what needs to be done to eliminate hunger, and how people can become involved. Part 2 contains a series of elementary level classroom teaching strategies for special school events and holidays. These are hour-long lessons that tie together the subject of world hunger and the particular holiday the school is celebrating (e.g., Halloween, Thanksgiving, winter holidays, Valentine's Day, and spring holidays). The final part presents a series of secondary level lesson plans in each of the five subject areas: social studies, language arts, health/nutrition, the visual arts, and the sciences. Each series is divided into five steps which can be completed in five days or extended over a longer period. In each subject area, one series is for beginning level or younger students, one is intermediate, and one is for older or more advanced students. Following these three series of lesson plans are suggestions for extending the classroom activities into class-action projects, evaluation strategies, and a list of over 60 films, books, and organizations to contact.
