Global Agricultural and Economic Sustainability"   This weeklong workshop aims to inform K-12 teachers on issues related to global agricultural and economic sustainability by focusing on various global regions including Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. Through the week, we will hear from regional experts on agricultural trends and practices, food access and distribution, intersections with environmental and economic sustainability and how it all relates to our own food decisions.   The workshop will deepen participants’ understanding of global food issues and challenges while exploring how teachers can translate these topics into lessons that will engage students of various levels and with varying interests. Both food and agriculture have deep ties to every classroom subject – from foreign language and social studies to history and economics to biology and math, and we look forward to working with teachers to understand how these topics can be incorporated into their curricula.   BENEFITS: Teachers will receive a certificate of completion with contact hours, and a $100 stipend upon completing a revised lesson by August 1. The seminar is open to both pre-service and in-service teachers and is free of charge. Parking tokens will be provided, lunch on your own. Graduate coursework available, inquire for more information.
