Abstract:

Twelve posters show families--in their homes with a week's worth of food displayed around them--in Bhutan, Chad, China, Ecuador, Germany, Guatemala, India, Japan, Kuwait, Mali, Mexico, and the United States. The curriculum guide includes critical thinking questions, writing prompts, activities, reading strategies, and a PowerPoint® presentation (with slides corresponding to each poster) that leads students through the process of visual analysis. By examining the photographs, as well as the country facts (life expectancy, obesity rate) and family information (food sources, cooking methods) provided on each 44 x 56 cm. poster, students can draw inferences, compare and contrast, and make generalizations about our "hungry planet." The related book supplies more country statistics and an essay about the lives and eating habits of each family, along with full-color photographs.
