Resource includes excerpts from an article by Jared Diamond titled "The Worst Mistake in Human History." In the article, Diamond argues that the discovery of agriculture was actually a mistake the worsened the human condition. He points out that agriculture led to social class, wars, gender inequality, etc. The resource defines difficult words for struggling readers, and has a column for students to summarize main ideas and a final column for them to annotate and write questions/comments. This article is a great resource for teachers looking to get students to engage in higher level thinking, and it presents the Neolithic Revolution (which is normally taught in a positive light) from a different perspective.
