IOER Learning List Help & Information

It can be as small as a lesson or as large as a curriculum. It can be constructed by a user or team of users, and has several features, including:

  • Allowing users to browse every detail of the Learning List
  • Restricting access to assessments and answer keys
  • Sharing the Learning List directly or as a widget on your website

12.6 - Food Security


(Obj. 12.6: Explain how access, time, cost, and marketing influence eating choices which lead to health disparities.) This lesson helps build a deeper understanding of health disparities as it focuses on some of the major factors that shape food security and helps students connect these factors with populations who might be most affected. Students will begin by analyzing a graph depicting the changing cost of healthy eating. Next they will complete three short readings from Unnatural Causes--on food security, key factors, and consequences. Finally, students will interview a community member for homework, applying these factors to an analysis of their own community.
