Teaching the Social Issues of a Sustainable Food Supply
Shuttleworth, Jay
Social Studies, v106 n4 p159-169 2015
Understanding the pressing need for humans to limit their consumption to more supportable levels, this study investigated how one social studies teacher taught the social issues associated with a sustainable food supply. This article discusses what the teacher's curricular, pedagogical, and assessment strategies were in engaging students with dialogical questions about more sustainable consumption. In addition, it offers insights for how such instructional techniques might inform a more personally-responsive approach to teaching about sustainability education.
