This awareness building short reading and discussion activity allows students to:

  1. Learn more about the importance of sustainability and the effect of food production on the environment. 
  2. The importance of offering potential solutions for climate change. 
  3. Share ways that they might relay information about this issue to audiences. 

Practice public speaking and reflective reading skills.


Review the article "Taking a Bite out of Climate Change" by Anna Lassé, as well as the discussion questions below.
Review and adjust the instructions to students as needed.
Remind students that they should bring a copy of their discussion answers and the annotated article to class.
Depending upon the length of your class, prioritize which specific questions you would like students to respond to during the time allowed for discussion.
