The Omnivore's Dilemma is a great way to get high school, gifted and upper-level students thinking about food systems, sustainability, economics and government!
I have reading quizzes and answer keys for every chapter, so you just have to download and make copies! Use as a morning quiz after readings are due or have the students complete the quiz as they read to make sure they are paying attention!
This book isn't just for Culinary Arts students. Lessons in government, economics, environmental issues and consumer science become relevant and powerful in The Omnivore's Dilemma!
Check out my other lessons about sustainability and make it a whole unit or a running theme throughout the year.
