Hog Farms in Pennsylvania.
Shannon, Patrick
Reading Teacher, v56 n7 p688-90 Apr 2003
Discusses a community's opinion and reaction to corporate hog farms. Acknowledges the vivid demonstration of literacy in these communities. Considers how these citizens use their literacy as political agents--just like they were taught to do in civics classes in high school--to participate in decisions affecting their lives. Considers the developing courage the people of these communities had to question science and the commercial market. (SG)
