For the InstructorThese student materials complement the Future of Food Instructor Materials. If you would like your students to have access to the student materials, we suggest you either point them at the Student Version which omits the framing pages with information designed for faculty (and this box). Or you can download these pages in several formats that you can include in your course website or local Learning Managment System. Learn more about using, modifying, and sharing InTeGrate teaching materials.
Capstone Project Stage 3
Vulnerability and Resilience
At this stage, you should have collected quite a bit of data related to the physical environment of your region (water, soils, and climate) as well as related to the regional food system, including the history of the regional food system and which crops are grown in your region. You may also have discovered some impacts that the regional food system is having on soil and water resources in the region.
In stage 3, you will explore the vulnerabilities in your regional food system and the potential resilience of the system. The diagram below summarizes what you will cover in Stage 3.
What to do for Stage 3?
- Download and complete the CapstoneProject_Stage3.docx worksheet that contains a table summarizing the data you'll need to collect to complete this stage. Remember, you need to think deeply about each response and write responses that reflect the depth of your thought as informed by your research.
- Add questions and continue to research the questions in your word file.
- Keep track of all of the resources and references you use.
- Add relevant data, maps, and figures to your PowerPoint file.
