These are some of the questions high school students are encouraged to consider in the new Food Inc. Discussion Guide, developed by the Center for Ecoliteracy and released
The teacher's guide is a companion to the recent documentary, Food, Inc., which takes a critical look at the industrialization of our country's food supply. Participant Media produced the film in collaboration with River Road Entertainment and Magnolia Pictures.
The 102-page guide provides questions and activities about the film's themes, including health, sustainability, animal welfare, and workers' rights. It is designed to help high school students make more thoughtful choices about food and participate in a meaningful dialogue about food and food systems.
The guide suggests questions to promote critical thinking and understanding of complex issues. Rather than present specific points of view, the discussion questions are designed to help students explore the issues through a deeper exploration of their own thinking.
