Sustainable Agriculture - Article Reading Guide

Sustainable Agriculture - Article Reading Guide

"Sustainable agriculture takes many forms, but at its core is a rejection of the industrial approach to food production developed during the 20th century." This resource is a good opening activity for students to get introduced to the topic of sustainable agriculture. The article that students read is about 1.5 pages long. The reading guide is a problem analysis document that requires students to consider 3 problems, the pros and cons and finally a solution. The guide comes in 3 formats (Fillable word form, Word document and PDF). The article is included in PDF format as well! Setup for easy of use for the teacher. Share the fillable Word form with students so they can research, type their answers directly into the word form and print or send their work to the teacher quickly. Otherwise, print the PDF so they hand write their work. Finally, the Word files allow you to personalize the research documents quickly to meet specific needs. Thanks for looking!
