This page offers a Teacher Toolbox, a set of materials on the current KCC Reads book teachers can use, adapt or be inspired by: course syllabi, classroom exercises, assignments, exams, etc. In the English department, we have developed a number of such toolboxes that are used by members of our faculty—when teaching a course for the first time, for example, or when newly hired, and thus needing to familiarize themselves with assigned courses and with Kingsborough practices.

In connection with KCC Reads, we assemble this Teacher Toolbox for similar reasons. Many faculty adopting the book are teaching it for the first time. And so, this set of teaching materials can be most helpful.

Please read through the material below and use or adapt whatever parts are useful for your class. Know that this page is a work in progress. Any questions or ideas, suggestions for improvement, and, most especially, any additional teaching materials you have for inclusion in the Toolbox for Eating Animals would be very much appreciated. If so, please send them to us at:
