Food for Thought

By: Diane Vore

Our most memorable experiences, from holiday dinners to birthday parties, often include special foods. Incorporating food into classroom or small-group guidance lessons makes learning life skills more memorable, and allows students to process the information with all of their senses.

Food for Thought addresses a wide range of social, emotional, and academic skills, and provides a high level of flexibility for educators. Students who aren't as strong in traditional academic skills, such as reading and writing, can participate in the lessons on an even playing field, and the incorporation of non-traditional teaching methods helps all students to learn important skills in a relaxed, low-pressure environment. Each lesson can stand alone, and the lessons need not be taught in any particular order. The lessons are designed to facilitate short, thought-provoking discussions, and then to progress into activities involving social and cooperative learning. A tasty snack, related to the lesson, is then served to reinforce the main concepts addressed.

Topics include:

  • Beginning the School Year
  • Academic Skills
