I just wanted to alert you all to the wonderful discussion questions available to go along with Food, Inc. You can find them here. The questions are available in Spanish as well.
The discussion guide divides the video up into chapters. It describes what to expect in each section and provides background information that is necessary for understanding the film’s material.
The description is followed by discussion questions to have students think even deeper.
I especially appreciate the action steps after each chapter. The students are very affected by the images in the film- tears from the students are not uncommon. It is SO important for students to feel empowered from this film instead of discouraged.
The discussion guide helps students process and apply the film. It also makes me (the teacher) more involved in the film so students do not feel like the film is “babysitting” them.
