EDUC 510 - Farm to School Internship

An internship in which students serve as education interns to help implement a food, agriculture, and physical activity-based curriculum in local schools. Interns work with community gardens and with the trail system at the Meadville Area Recreation Complex (MARC). Opportunities include modifying current curriculum, writing new curriculum, conducting classes and engaging local students. The internship's academic component includes readings and discussion of agricultural environmental issues, environmental education philosophies, nutrition education philosophies, and farm to school education broadly. The curriculum for local schools integrates novel and healthier approaches to coursework, such as outdoor classrooms and student empowerment. Interns should therefore be prepared to participate in particularly creative, challenging, and rewarding educational experiences. Prerequisites: None. Distribution Requirements: None.
