C. The Politics of Food - in groups of two
- Your job is to choose one of the potential or announced Republican presidential candidates and play that role.
- Convince the class that you are the most qualified Republican, and a better alternative to President Obama.
- There's room for creativity here - you can give a speech, participate in a roundtable discussion, or create a television advertisement.
- Create something that the class can eat, and explain the politics and science of that serving.
- You must actually create something (no bag of chips will count).
- You must bring enough for the entire class to consume.
- You must analyze all relevant political aspects of the item you are serving (and its components).
- You must also discuss any relevant scientific aspects of the item that you are service (especially as it relates to U.S. politics).
- Your analysis should include each individual ingredient. Attempt to find the source of each ingredient, who creates it, how it's made and what it's made from, and any political issues associated with it. An online search of specific ingredient names might provide some information, or you might need to contact the manufacturer.
