People of the Corn – Availability Ends
Read “Corn’s Conquest” by Michael Pollan (337-343) and write the following two paragraphs:
Paragraph 1, describe the process by which corn has become included in such a large part of the American food chain (341-342). Paraphrase as much as possible but
punctuate and cite any borrowed language you can’t put in your own words.
Paragraph 2, in your own words, describe the process by which Americans have physically become the “true people of the corn” (343).
Definition of Problem Statement – Availability Ends
Define the problem by writing a clear thesis statement about your topic. Then provide bullet points to define the causes and/or effects of the problem. In other
words, “show” your reader that the problem really exists and is worthy of research.
