In this product you will find 15 pages of pre- and post-reading for the Young Reader's Edition of the Omnivore's Dilemma. A fun activity to get students engaged in the text by Michael Pollan. Can be completed whole class, small group, or independently. Asks students to estimate and respond to questions that they have likely never considered before, as well as to focus on comprehension questions and main ideas. Ex: How many farmers live and work in the United States today? or Should domesticated animals be freed? What, exactly, is meant by sustainable? Students record best estimate or answer, and then revise their responses in a separate column upon reading. Each chapters and section is represented. Enjoy!
