Welcome to ELA-8! Students are progressing through Module 4. This module is based upon the young reader's edition of Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma, and it is all about the food we eat: how it is grown and raised and how this affects us as consumers of this food. Students will be asked to think critically when it comes to making choices about the food they eat. They are free to disagree with the arguments Mr. Pollan puts forth and to recognize that the purpose and intent of his book is both to inform and to persuade.
Students are presently in the midst of their research project, which involves researching and formulating their own arguments pertaining to the best methods for growing and raising our food, both for our families and for our society.
