Part 1. Students will develop a list of 12 ‘take-aways’ (as directed in the provided answer
document) after reading Chapters 2 & 3 & 4 in Agriculture and Food Controversies.
NOTE: Students can select to write 4 statements about each of the three chapters
read OR 12 total that reflect all thoughts from all three chapters
Things to know about ‘take-away’ statements:
• ‘Take-Away’s’ are substantial statements that identify important and factual information about
the chapters read.
• Statements should represent information that students find interesting or important to each
segment in the episode and does not need to be verbatim (exactly as stated) from the chapters
but can be a summary statement that reflects information. Think college-level thoughts
Example of a poor statement: Eating locally grown food is better
Why it is poor – not substantial and definitely not college level thinking.
Example of an appropriate statement: Locally grown foods have the potential to be better for the
environment because only 10% of carbon emissions produced by agriculture come from transporting
food so a shorter trip to the store could mean even less emissions.
Why it is appropriate – brings up a couple of points and the statement itself reflects more substantial
college-level structure and thinking.
Part 2: Students will respond to the four ‘metacognitive’ questions listed in the answer document.
