Food Issues Month – IATEFL GISIG

October 1st, 2013 by Dave · 1 Comment

IATEFL’s Global Issues Special Interest Group is hosting Food Issues Month this October. They’re asking teachers from around the world to shares lessons and activities related to:

  • Hunger and food scarcity
  • Food safety and food regulation
  • Food advertising and labels
  • Meat
  • Genetically modified (GM) foods
  • Diets and food lifestyle choices
  • Obesity and eating disorders
  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Food and labour issues

You can share material on their website, and they’ll be putting together weekly summaries of what people post. I’ll be sharing some ideas, and I’m looking forward to seeing what other folks are doing.

    This is a very timely topic right now. There are many debates that can be talked about such as obesity, junk food. Students can also be asked about how to solve hunger.
