Wisconsin Food Systems Education Conceptual Framework
Author(s) Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education, UW-Extension Cooperative Extension
The Wisconsin Food Systems Education Conceptual Framework was created and designed to support and unite existing efforts, together boosting and growing food systems education throughout the state. Teaching about food systems is complicated and often challenging. This document is a guide for formal and informal educators, whether they are updating existing K-12 curricula, creating a new curriculum, or developing community programming for food systems education. This guide enables comprehensive education about food systems, presented in a logical sequence to facilitate application at any educational level. The framework allows for cohesion and consistency in what is now a fundamentally essential area of education (35 pages; 2015).
