 3/15 Registration


Workshop Title: Broccoli or Cake? The Equity of Healthy Food Choices

Presenters: Maria Enrique, Ellington Public Schools; Sherryl King, Hartford Public Schools; Sarah Poppel, Hartford Public Schools

Description: Rated as the 9th most expensive state to live in, Connecticut has a high cost of living, including above-average grocery prices. In addition, the urban and rural areas tend to have more convenience stores than grocery stores. Join us for this session to participate in a lesson that engages students in a hands-on experience that causes them to think critically about the equity of healthy food choices. Participants will have the opportunity to consider a variety of social justice topics such as budget, access, cost, types of markets, and transportation.

Note: This lesson is geared towards a middle school audience, but is adaptable to other contexts.

The ATOMIC Mission is to ensure that every Connecticut student receives world-class education in mathematics by providing vision, leadership and support to the K-16 mathematics community and by providing every teacher of mathematics the opportunity to grow professionally.
