Today we finished reading our excerpt of Fast Food Nation. Click here to access the reading. Remember we started at page 63 of the PDF yesterday, and read until the second paragraph on page 65 of the PDF. Today, if you were gone, make sure you read until "Don't Get Caught" on page 66 of the PDF.
Then, take some time to again think of the similarities between The Jungle and Fast Food Nation. Then, write down what surprised you most about the reading. You should have a few connections between the two texts that are bullet-pointed, and then the part that surprised you most can just be one sentence long.
Next, you need to start trying to figure out the connection that can let us know the why. Grapple with the underlying meaning of the “why.” Take the most surprising or shocking information that you read, and decide why this behavior is allowed to perpetuate without ramifications. Having some brainstorming of this will be helpful for you before you come back to class.
I know this seems confusing. Essentially, we are trying to discover what bigger implications allow this to keep happening. For instance, one student mentioned that he was most surprised with the deception of corporations. One of the similarities he saw between The Jungle and Fast Food Nation was the abuse of employees. Therefore, he could frame his response as this:
Largely, in the last 100 years, employee abuse still seems to occur in meatpacking factories because of the deception of corporations. If a corporation is able to hide how they treat employees, then that abuse can continue rather easily, as no one outside that company is any the wiser.
Certainly, please email me or send me a Remind message if you need a little extra assistance. I would be more than willing to help, but this must be done by appointment or email/Remind, as it's hard to get class going if someone is asking me at the start of class for help.
We then watched the following TED talk: How to End the Food Waste Fiasco. Click here to watch.
As you watch, take notes any time you hear a connection between what the speaker is saying, and what you learned in regard to Fast Food Nation and The Jungle.
Today we finished week 4 of our library lab time. Please click on the JUNIOR RESEARCH PAPER link to get any documents needed, and as always, you must catch up to the checkpoint by the next time we meet. Papers are due a week from Friday.
