Video Talking Trash Curriculum Guide

New York City creates over 36 thousands tons of trash every day! That’s a lot of garbage! Where does it all go and who makes those decisions? Why does it matter? CUP’s Talking Trash Curriculum Guide provides educators and organizers fun, hands-on activities based on the award winning, student-made documentary, Talking Trash: Throwing Out the Big Apple!

The DVD comes with a guide that includes eight hands-on activities and extension lessons which explore the journey of trash, from what we consume to where our trash goes after it’s thrown away. Activities can be taught individually or as a series, and all are aligned with Common Core Learning standards. The curriculum guide also includes guiding questions for each section of the video, several pre-made worksheets, a glossary, and a few ideas for how to expand and adapt this curriculum your local community.

If you are looking to acquire a copy for a library, or are interested in hosting a screening, please email info@welcometocup.org
