Food Inc

The current method of raw food production is largely a response to the growth of the fast food industry since the 1950s. The production of food overall has more drastically changed since that time than the several thousand years prior. Controlled primarily by a handful of multinational corporations, the global food production business - with an emphasis on the business - has as its unwritten goals production of large quantities of food at low direct inputs (most often subsidized) resulting in enormous profits, which in turn results in greater control of the global supply of food sources within these few companies. Health and safety (of the food itself, of the animals produced themselves, of the workers on the assembly lines, and of the consumers actually eating the food) are often overlooked by the companies, and are often overlooked by government in an effort to provide cheap food regardless of these negative consequences.

We're going to watch the video in class, you can see it again here :

Then in groups of three you're going to work on parts of the video with a written guide and make your own presentation to tell your mates your version of the story.
You can choose one of the topics.The guide is thought for teachers but I'm going to help you to addapt it, don't worry.

After the presentations you'll play a game. Use English, play, enjoy and finally share your ideas about the game and Mc Donald's production of course.

                                                                Mc Donald's game

Adjectives ending in -ing or -ed
