Important Notes

  • This assignment is worth 100 points.
  • All poster must contain the following elements:
  • the title of your poster (think in terms of what will make someone want to come and read your poster) and the author’s name.
  • Your objective for your topic (Why is the topic important? What impact could it have on our lives?)
  • Data that addresses the topic itself (What are the results of our research? What did you learn about the topic that you want to share with other people?)
  • Conclusion (What is the overall message? What do you want your audience to remember one week from when they read your poster?)
  • Reference list containing abbreviated bibliographies for all your sources.
  • Your message should be mainly visual.  Avoid lots of text and long paragraphs; use images, graphs, flow charts, and so on.  Be creative in your design to grab attention and communicate your message diagrammatically. All images must have captions that explain the graphic to the audience; otherwise, points will be deducted.
  • Make sure to read the grading rubric in Canvas and use it as a guide or checklist to make sure you meet all criteria to get maximum points.
  • The poster will be a specific size: 13″ x 19″, either landscape or portrait.  That choice is up to you.  I will make two templates available in the project folder in the form of PowerPoint files.  If you want to use them, you can upload them into PowerPoint, Google Slides, or Pages.  When saving the final file for the exhibition,  it should be in the form of an image file (JPEG, PNG) or a PDF.

Based on your viewing of the Bitter Seeds documentary, and the supplementary readings answer these questions:

  1. First, based solely on your viewing of the documentary, answer this question – ’Who do you think bears most responsibility for this problem, and what do you think should be done to reduce the number of farmer suicides?’

Next, read the three articles linked to on the Sakai course site. One is a Guardian article, One is a response from Monsanto, one is an article in a magazine (Mother Jones). The three have different explanations for the farmer suicides. Refer in detail to the articles cited, using quotations if you are directly quoting material.
2. What does each of the articles identify as the main cause behind the rise in farmer suicides?
3. Which of these explanations do you find most convincing? Why?
4. Which of these explanations do you find least convincing? Why?
5. Having now read the readings, read the final one – India’s solution to this problem. Do you think this is a major step in the right direction? Is it enough?
6. Finally, I would like you to think of a core concept in the class textbook. In trying to think about globalization and complex global issues coming together in one place, what we put at the center of our focus is critical. Do we value the sustainability of the planet, of people or of the economy as the most important thing. In the case of cotton growing, especially genetically modified cotton grown in India, what do you feel is the most important thing to focus on, and the biggest challenge to overcome. Support your answer with a reference or two to strengthen your argument.
