The film I watched was titled Food, Inc. This film examines the food industry and the industrial production of the many products we eat today (meats, grains, and vegetables). This film is trying to explain how agribusiness is producing food that is not healthy. In the film they also assess how todays agribusiness is harmful to the environment and abusive to the animals and workers. This film examines where the food we eat is coming from, how it is being produced, and who is producing it. They film is diving into how few giant corporations are basically controlling the growth, processing and sale of food in this country. In the film they give a statistic, which states that the top 4 meat-producing companies in the country are responsible for
The Unveiling of the Food Industry Food is an essential part of our lives. We consume it every day and absolutely need it to live and thrive successfully. With something so significant to us, why should we risk the source of where our food comes from? Robert Kenner created a powerhouse documentary film called Food Inc. that gives an accurate description of the horrible realities of corporate farming by providing evidence of the harm affecting both humans and animals. Robert Kenner is a film director and producer. Kenner claims that today; food can be potentially harmful to the health of any consumer and the process of creating certain foods is detrimental to the lives of the animals and humans involved in the procedure.

Raniel Gernale HHM Course 1. Nutrition for Health Nutrition is a concept that plays an important role in our well-being. Our body and the way we feel reflect on what foods we ingest as well as how we take care of ourselves. This course allowed us to analyze our diets in order to see how well we were with nutrition. I was lacking a significant amount of vitamins and minerals, as well as a few macronutrients. My physical activity level was about average so that was another improvement I had to make. The way we feel correlates to how we eat. Junk food can cause our skin to break out as well as make us feel sluggish throughout the day. This course has helped me make a change in my eating habits for the better. One change that I have been proud to make is that I am now accustomed to drinking black coffee. Originally, I would load in a lot of cream and sugar, but that is no way healthy at all. I now feel so much better knowing that I am able to make and keep even the smallest changes in my lifestyle.
In general, I feel that this lesson was generally successful. The students, for the most part were engaged and thinking about the North East region. During the previous lesson, we discussed that the regions were divided by climate, culture, geography and economy and the students were able to apply those concepts to the lesson. Because they are familiar with this region, because it is our home region, they were able to compare and analyze aspects of this region to the other regions. They determined the climate, culture, economy and geography of this region by activating prior knowledge and sharing what they knew about the
People have lost sight of the common denominator with all the finger pointing, when it comes to the intriguing argument of whom or what determines what we eat. Individuals have forgotten the process of supply and demand, democracy, and most important individual choices. Authors Khullar, Barlett and Steele, Singer, and
Over the course of working on this project, I believe there are necessary changes that need to be made in the current structure to accomplish and sustain the Real Food Challenge goals by 2020. One of the first things that need to be addressed is, the lack of cooperation that we have gotten from our campus Sodexo workers, as well as the entire corporation of Sodexo. It has been frustrating to deal with the two-faced approach and the countless roadblocks that our cafeteria seems to be giving us.
On the first day the children were so excited that they were able to pick different colors to mix. They spent most of the time mixing their colors, but they also painted pictures. All three children stayed for about twenty minutes. On the second day, A was absent, but J and K wanted to mix more colors and also use their old colors in their paintings. I cut a lunch tray in half so each child would be able to make a few more colors. Each child stayed for about twenty-five minutes. On both days, the children all did a great job at discussing what colors they created and what they painted. The rest of the children in the class did a great job of waiting while the children in my small group were painting. I just had to keep reminding them that when A, K, and J were done, they would also get a turn. Overall, I think the activity went well, but if I were to do this again, I could slightly change it. For this activity, the children had the option of different sized paint brushes to paint their pictures. In the future, I could give them an option to paint with sponges, a ping pong ball, string, or even their fingers. Artistically, the children were able to be as creative as they wanted. They learned more about mixing colors including how to make green, pink, and purple. They also learned that if you mix all of the colors together you get a gray or brown color. Socially, the children learned more about each other and why they made the decisions they made in their paintings. While the children were painting, I made sure to ask the children questions about their work. K had the idea of pouring some paint of each color directly on her paper, and then mixing them together. While K was doing this, I asked her, “K, why did you want to pour the paint directly onto your paper?” K responded, “Because so I can see which colors they make and also so I can drizzle them!” J thought this was a
Industry Analysis Dominant Industry Characteristics Since going public in 1991, Whole Foods has focused on acquiring other small owner-managed natural and organic food stores as well as opening new stores of their own. However in 2002-2006, they decided that instead of making acquisitions, Whole Foods growth strategy would be based on opening new stores. Whole Foods chooses upscale, urban metropolitan areas to place their stores. These locations are high traffic shopping locations, some are freestanding, some are in strip centers, and some are in high-density mixed-use projects. By the end of 1991 fiscal year Whole Foods had 10 stores and by the end of 2007 they had 276 stores. By 2008, Whole Foods had stores in 36 states.
This documentary manages to reflect the reality of humanity today, but is hidden before our eyes for us to continue living in a world dedicated to consumerism and "all for the rich - little for the poor." Thus reflect Food Inc. allows human beings, exposing issues like the handling of animals, genetic modifications made daily, indiscriminate overuse of antibiotics, violations that exist immigration laws affecting workers, constant epidemics of diseases and the increasing rate of people suffering from obesity due to their inability to buy healthy food, the little time available because of their work schedules, or simply the variety of engineered foods, which can be extracted very few nutrients. These are just some of the aspects that presents Food, Inc. to demonstrate how corrupt practices in food production are favored daily, passing over the health of consumers and welfare of animals and natural resources.
Although, it was still necessary that I demonstrate what they were going to do before I did anything. In the beginning, some students struggled with catching from any distance, yet their performance and effort was great. In the last activity (Leap Frog) their skill level was moderate, some struggled with shuffling simply because they did not have on appropriate gym wear. When I noticed this a gave a better demonstration and let most students preform the task in a modified manner. If I did this lesson again I would check for understanding more frequently in all four quadrants of the
2) Did the activity go as planned? Why or why not? Overall the lesson went I as planned for it to go. The students enjoyed the activity and were easily engaged it in. The students asked lots of questions that showed they were thinking about what we were doing and trying to figure out how it worked. Something that I didn’t anticipate was some of the children had an issue with touching the wet cotton balls. They didn’t like the feel or texture, so I had to help them complete the activity. It was definitely easier to work with the smaller groups, two or three students, than the bigger
Evaluation I have planned and chosen the curriculum links aligned with the activity and the outcome. I have carefully planned the resources/ materials required for the experiment, including plain flour, soft icing mixture and corn flour, water and food colouring. I believe that children would be engaged and motivated in the experiment, as they observe my demonstration and the curiosity to find out the mysterious mixture. Next time, I would ask students to bring a list of items from their kitchen pantry, and to use one of them as an additional mixture, as they will be interested in trying out a mixture of their choic, such as whole meal (wheat, flour), and rice flour. Next time, I would ensure that the lesion is timed well.
Like I have previously said I should have modified the soccer balls with Frisbees in my lesson to better fit the skill levels of my students. I have also learned the importance of collaborating with more experienced teachers to make myself a more effective educator. A perfect example of collaboration with more experienced educators would have been asking the homeroom teacher to review my lesson plan before I taught. In education a lot of times experience can mean a lot to an educators overall philosophy. This semester I have also learned the importance of an introduction. In watching my peers and reflecting on my own teach it’s evident that those who had the stronger introductions had the stronger and more effective lessons. The 80/ 20 rule which basically means that 80 percent will understand your intro and 20 percent will learn from hands on activity also proved to be important in instruction, but also equally important in overall time
I honestly thought that this lesson was going to be taught to teach to the class. I spent countless hours reading the information in the curriculum handbook and even collaborating with other teachers just to understand the material properly. I was thoroughly surprised at how well the lesson was received and it greatly boosted my self confidence in my planning and teaching decisions.
Case Studies Analysis Paper The case I decided to do my critique on is called Our Food your Questions. The campaign was produced by McDonald’s in 2014. According to the PRSA Silver Anvil Award Entry the campaign was designed to get the restaurant out of its biggest sales decline in ten years. The decline in sales was attributed to misconceptions millennials had about the restaurant’s food.
