A Look Ahead at Next week: next week we will step out into the Woodlands on Jan. 31st (after Formative MCQ) to see what products we find in local supermarkets and wet markets serving the Woodlands community --and more importantly where this food comes from and the health and sustainability of this system we rely upon for our food here. We will then begin preparation for a debate on the future of farming (not a formal debate but more of a critical Socratic Discussion). This is how we will wrap up this unit as we prepare for the summative MCQ and FRQ on Feb. 8th.
