Food INC. Assignment
You are to write a 3-5 page reflection paper after watching Food INC. The assignment must be Times New Roman, 12 point font, 1 inch margin, and double spaced. You are to submit the assignment online in blackboard. I want you to focus on the obvious and not so obvious sociological connections to this film. Look through your notes and your textbook on Bureaucracies and Formal Organizations and use those terms. I have also attached the questions from the Food INC worksheet, that you do NOT have to do, but may assist you in an outline for your paper. This is a 35 point assignment. You must use the 8 words below. Put the words in bold print. Proper grammar and punctuation are required as usual.
1. How is the world of commercial farming like a bureaucracy?
2. Why are sociologists interested in studying the production of food in the U.S?
3. How did this film make you feel about your own eating habits?
4. What are some of the environmental and human consequences of the commercial food industry? (A current event that can be related to sociology) Does it affect all racial and ethnic groups in the same way? Explain your answer.
