Click here for a quick look at all videos we've produced to date that feature some of the teachers and schools that are most effectively combating obesity in the U.S. .
ENC-Teacher Exchange focuses this month on hunger with "Breakfast in Dallas Classrooms," a video feature about the very successful program unanimously approved this year by the Dallas Independent School District. In February we featured "Go Slow Whoa," a video feature story from Laredo Elementary School in Aurora, Colorado.
Other recent additions include:
ENC-Teacher Exchange shines the light on K thru 12th grade educators who teach lifestyle choices that effectively combat obesity. In addition to spotlighting outstanding teachers in video stories, which we hope serve to inspire others, we also encourage teachers to create new teaching tools and methods to combat obesity, and reward them for doing so with a modest honorarium. ENC-Teacher Exchange was created in 2012 by Egg Nutrition Center, science division of The American Egg Board.
"Teachers tell us they have a constant need for easily accessible lesson plans, PowerPoints, and other teaching tools that inspire kids to grasp the full benefits of a healthier lifestyle," explains Mitchell Kanter, PhD., Executive Director of Egg Nutrition Center. "We'd like to help facilitate that creative process, and invite teachers to share their best ideas with us to develop new programs that other teachers can use in their classroom."
