This test asks students to answer questions pertaining to Part I of The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. I let the students use the book and their notes on the test; however, I do put a time limit on the test. Students who have taken good notes and who have read thoroughly do quite well. I teach 7th and 8th grade.
This test was made to be used with the Young Reader's Edition of Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma. However, I have compared the information to the original version of the book, and this information still applies.
