Critical Food Literacy through Multicultural Texts
- Thursday, November 5, 2020 from 11:00am to 12:30pm
Join us for our next Sandbox Webinar, titled Critical Food Literacy through Multicultural Texts, led by Lina Yamashita (VIA). One way to invite students to engage with Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) issues in the food system is to use multicultural texts that highlight diverse, marginalized perspectives of food workers, many of whom are people of color, women, and/or undocumented. There are three objectives for this interactive webinar: 1) introduce a conceptual framework for fostering critical food literacy; 2) model the process of teaching with multicultural texts about food workers, with virtual adaptations; and 3) illustrate the need for instructors to be comfortable with discomfort and to be both reflective and reflexive as they engage in sustainable food systems education.
This sandbox webinar series for Sustainable Food Systems educators provides professional development opportunities to gain, enhance, and share knowledge and skills regarding two pedagogical issues of this time:(1) Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion(JEDI) and,(2) Online teaching.
