I have been teaching Food Studies for about 15 years and I am constantly revising, changing and trying new things. I feel very fortunate to be teaching such a dynamic course but I still sometimes find it hard to balance hands-on-learning with meeting all the curriculum objectives and effectively assess them. I know that many teachers in CTS, Fine Arts and other areas face similar dilemmas. How do you "teach" your classes? Today I would like to share some of my journey as a Food Studies teacher and as a CTS department head and I would love to dialogue with others as we take an opportunity to cook a few of my favourite dishes that I have done with my students over the years and have a few of them share their perceptions of alternative learning in classrooms. Come prepared to participate!

Please send an email transfer of $10 to jeff.lerouge@rdcrs.ca to pay for the ingredients and secure your spot. NO REFUNDS. In your message, please indicate which session you are attending and if you are paying for someone else. Thank you.

This session will be held at Ecole Secondaire Notre Dame High School (50 Lees St, Red Deer, AB T4R 2P6).
