While FFAC’s classroom programming is ideal for science, social studies, English, philosophy, and health classes, we’ve adapted our lessons to nearly every subject area—and will customize according to your needs.
Traditional lecture: this format requires a single class period and, while holistically addressing the impacts on animals, social justice, health, and the environment, can also focus more in-depth on any of these aspects to best fit your curriculum.
Single-period Interactive Lesson: this format allows students to co-construct knowledge around our food system, focusing on depth of understanding rather than breadth of information.
Discussion-based lesson: this format offers students ample opportunity to think critically about issues such as environmental ethics, worker exploitation, and animal welfare and to brainstorm their own solutions. To prepare for the lesson, students watch a video of the traditional presentation in class the day before we come in, and can complete a worksheet to use as a basis for our lesson the following day. This is a fantastic option if you have time to show the 37-minute video.
To supplement the lesson we conduct with your class, we offer additional resources that include follow up lesson plans and pre- and post-presentation discussion questions and activities.
