The Writing Prompt: In this project. apply what you have learned from earlier projects. Your purpose is to propose a solution to a specific manifestation of one of the problems in America’s food system that we have studied this quarter. Your solution should be targeted at a government agency, an NGO, or a community group and should include specific steps or policies that they can implement to solve the problem.
Your main point (thesis) should answer the following questions:
What is the specific food problem for which you are proposing a solution? Why is the problem important? What is your solution? Why is your solution the best one for this problem?
Please note, that this project is NOT asking you to compose a 5-paragraph essay.
To compose your drafts, we recommend that you complete the following steps:
Step 1: Choose a specific aspect of the food system problem for which you want to propose a solution. It can be the same example of a food problem that you defined in Project #2, but you will need to significantly change what you write about the issue because the focus of this paper is your solution, not the problem. You can also propose a solution for a problem discussed in the course that is different from the one you wrote about in Project #2.
Step 2: Identify course materials that you can use in your project. What information are those texts missing? What else do you need to know? Do some research of your own to find academic sources that will strongly support your proposal? Do some research about government, NGOs, and community groups that would be able to help implement your solution. That group will be your target audience.
Step 3: Develop some pre-writing to brainstorm and organize your ideas. To get started, consider the following questions:
How can you clearly and concisely define the problem you will address with your solution?
What are the roots of this problem?
Why is this problem important? Who is harmed by this situation?
How can you concisely explain your solution to this problem?
How can you show that your solution will help solve the problem?
What evidence can you provide to support your claims?
Why should the government or community group you are targeting care about your message?
In the past, we have written about food issues such as the environmental damage caused by industrial agriculture, the unfair treatment of migrant workers, etc. In this essay, you need to present a specific food problem and propose a specific solution and explain it. (e.g. automating the supply chain, reducing the over-skewing of human resources and over-consumption of labor)
For example, if the problem you are trying to solve is the environmental damage caused by food production (which is not specific enough), the solution could be to reduce harmful emissions caused by industrial agriculture by combining traditional agriculture with modern technology, etc.
Please use appropriate academic sources.

Throughout history, people (especially peasants and farmers) have faced environmental, political, and social challenges and oppressions. Often, a leader has risen to the occasion to help those who are hungry, starving and oppressed, whether directly (literally fighting) or indirectly (through research or discoveries). Pick a person from history who has championed for those facing hunger, starvation and related oppression. Research and write about them.
You may select from this list of possible leaders.

Prompt:
. Then write about the following
Key elements about their personal life: their name, when they lived, where they lived and a brief description about their early life or upbringing.
What did they do? Include a brief discussion about the conditions that lead them to this work (what condition or situation caused them to stand up or motivated them to work) AND what did they do (did they fight, create, discover, advocate, etc.)?
Example: if they fought for something what was it and what tactics did they use?
Example: if they created or discover something, what was it and how did they do this (alone, in a team, by accident, over many years, etc.)?
Lasting Impact: What was the outcomes of their efforts?
This will likely be a minimum 5 paragraph essay (introduction, 3 body paragraphs and a conclusion) with a minimum of 1000 words. You may “Agriculture in World History” or “Farm” books if appropriate. Ultimately you will use a total of 4 appropriate sources. The essay should be formatted in APA format including APA in-text citations and an APA Reference section at the end.
Additional Requirements and Information:
Introduction: Should clearly communicate the name of the person you selected to research and a brief statement about what they did. The introduction tells the reader an overview of what you are going to share in the body. (Hint: don’t share all the good stuff in this paragraph, entice the reader to continue reading).
3 body paragraphs: Your essay should have at least 3 body paragraphs, a paragraph for each underlined/bulleted component listed in the PROMPT above (personal life, what they did, impact of their work). In each paragraph you should cover the additional information requested in each bulleted item (ex: one paragraph on personal life with their name, when they lived, where they lived and a brief description about their early life or upbringing).
Summary: Summarize (restate briefly) the info you shared/discussed in the 3 body paragraphs. No new info should be included here. Instead, briefly tell the reader what you shared with them earlier in the essay.
References: You should include a References section at the end in APA format with at least 4 sources alphabetized.
More to consider:
Minimum 1000 words, 5 paragraphs
Max 30% similarity (includes the references page)
Each paragraph should have a minimum of 5 sentences. That is the minimum. You will likely need more than that to appropriately address the 3 body paragraphs as well as meet the 1000 word minimum for the paper.
Each body paragraph should have a minimum of 1 in-text citation (this can be done with direct quotes or paraphrased sentences). Each section (body) should have at least 1 unique source – that means, don’t use the same source over and over for the entire paper. Use different sources throughout. They must be in APA format.
No abstract page is required
Cover page (give it a fun title, not “Paper #3”) in APA format
Running head (page # only on top right) in APA format
Level 1 headings in APA format (your Introduction, each body paragraph and Conclusion should have a heading before each of those section. Your body paragraph headings might be something like: Their Life, Accomplishments, Impacts). You should have 5 headings used in your paper (be consistent, just use level 1). Level 1 headings are centered, boldface, uppercase and lowercase letters). You do not need level 2 or level 3 headings.
References section should only list the sources you actually cite (direct or paraphrase) in the essay. You cannot write an essay without citing sources and then list a bunch of sources in the references section. They must be incorporated into the essay. The sources you use should be listed in alphabetical order in the Reference section in APA format.
Minimum of 4 sources. You may use the “Agriculture in World History” and/or “Farm” book if appropriate. If so, those can count as part of your 4 total sources. Avoid open web, use the CPP library and other scholarly sources. You may use historical website that provide accurate, factual into (NO WIKIPEDIA).

1. How are most of the world’s agricultural producers different from corporate f

1. How are most of the world’s agricultural producers different from corporate farms
in California (10 points)?
2. Using simple diagrams and the agricultural household model we learned in class,
show how each of the following, in theory, affects (i) the agricultural labor
supply, and (ii) the agricultural labor demand in a representative agricultural
household with well-functioning markets (20 points each):
a. An increase in the agricultural wage
b. A negative weather shock to agricultural production
To do the rest of this homework you will need to watch the classic documentary film
Harvest of Shame (52 minutes). Edward R. Murrow, a pioneer in broadcast
journalism, narrated and co-produced the film. CBS first aired it just after
Thanksgiving Day in 1960. Its intent was “to shock Americans into action.” Even
though farm labor markets and (especially in California) some farm labor laws have
changed since then, the issues raised are still largely relevant, making this film a
good basis for a problem set.1 Think of it as field work!
You can access the film at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJTVF_dya7E
These questions are worth a maximum of 20 points each. Feel free to discuss in study
groups; however, you must write your answers independently. No two assignments
should be alike!
3. Draw a graph depicting the supply and demand for farm labor in multiple farm
labor markets, linked by migration. To simplify things, do this for two adjacent
farm labor markets—say, Florida and the states to the north, as depicted in the
film. Briefly explain where the demand and supply curves come from, and explain
1 Current farm worker protections are available at the websites of the U.S. Department of Labor
(https://www.usda.gov/oce/labor/laws.htm) and Farmworker Justice
(https://www.farmworkerjustice.org/advocacy-and-programs/us-labor-law-farmworkers).

the meaning of the equilibrium price and quantity in this figure. (Be sure to draw
these yourself; do not copy them from somewhere else.)
4. Use a mover-stayer model to explain why the people in Murrow’s documentary
participated in follow-the-crop migration. Use quotes and excerpts from the film
to back up your analysis.
5. In the years following the creation of this film, the US Congress enacted new
programs to help educate migrant farmworkers’ children. Meanwhile, the US
industrial and service sectors expanded. Using the graph (Question 3) and your
mover-stayer model (Question 4), please explain how (a) rising education of
farmworker children and (b) growth in nonfarm employment are likely to affect
the farm labor markets depicted in the film.
6. The interviewer asks Charles Schuman, President of the American Farm Labor
Bureau (AFBF; at about 39:25 in the video), why the AFBF opposes federal
legislation to protect farm workers. He also discusses this with Senator Williams,
Chair of the Subcommittee on Migratory Labor. Using your linked labor market
model, argue the case (a) for federal instead of state protections for farmworkers,
and (b) against federal protections (leaving farmworker protection up to states).
(Hint: Imagine your two farm labor markets being in different states.)
7. At about (22:15) into the video, the narrator explains that there has been a
“constant flow of foreign workers into the available pool of domestic workers”
which “depresses the wage scale” of domestic migrant workers. Use your graph
from Question 3 to show how immigration may alter the equilibrium outcome in
two or more migration-linked farm labor markets. Do you agree with Murrow’s
perception (22:17) about the impacts of immigration in the California farm labor
market at the time the film aired? Are the impacts today different? For both of
these questions, explain briefly why or why not.

Prompt:
The film explores the pervasiveness of corn in the foods we eat today and illustrates how government subsidies of corn and other commodity crops have greatly altered the way that food is produced and consumed in the United States. As the film describes, corn is a cheap ingredient compared to other sources, and food producers have found many uses for it, including high-fructose corn syrup, saccharin, xanthan gum, and a whole range of other food additives. In your paper, explain how corn became so prevalent in the United States, and why corn is used in so many products. Then explain the impact on the agriculture industry and consumers. Do you think corn should be used so extensively? Why or why not?
Thesis to be used:
With the mass use of corn in our agriculture industry, its impact on our society and consumers have been nothing less of detrimental. Its over-usage has not only affected us consumers, but our environment as well, which is why the usage of corn should not be used so extensively.
Things to be included in essay:
– Some connection or one/two sources atleast about the documentary film Food, Inc. It provides a critical look at the industrialized nature of our country’s food supply. It explores the relationship between how our food is produced and human health, workers’ rights, animal welfare, and other issues.
– It must have a works cited page
– Must be in MLA format
– Must use signal phrases/parenthetical references as appropriate for in-text citations
– Unique title

Write a 1-page single-spaced informal reflection in which you share a bit more broadly what you learned in this class. What surprised you that we discussed this semester, and why? What did you learn that you will share with friends and family, if anything? Are there lessons from this class that you will take away that will affect how you think of agriculture and the food system?
