From Farm to Fast Food
Working Films Initiative
On the Job in North Carolina: From
Farm to Fast Food
Teach students about workplace health and safety – critical issues that are as much about their present day life as it is about their future – via Working Films’ dynamic multimedia curriculum: From Farm to Fast Food (FF2FF).
Using excerpts from award winning independent films and media/internet literacy exercises, FF2FF supports the teaching of core economic issues while addressing workers' rights, race and economic justice.
This project includes lesson plans for three
Unit 1: Down on the Farm
Unit 2: In the Factory
Unit 3: Fast Food Women
The three units in the project take the student from the rural economy of the post-Civil War era to the service sector reflected by today’s fast food industry. The emphasis of each unit is directed by the core curriculum goals and the ELP goals developed by the state’s Department of Public Instruction.
