------- Forwarded Message Follows ------- Date: Wed, 10 Dec 1997 20:15:19 -0800 (PST) To: CLR E-mail list <clr@igc.org> From: Mike Rhodes <clr2@igc.apc.org> Subject: THE GLOBAL SWEATSHOP CURRICULUM PACKET


More than 60 pages of useful information, including: * 3 classroom exercises (with the necessary materials) * key terms * an inspiring report on teaching sweatshop issues in the classroom * profiles of young activists * practical suggestions for student action * suggestions for concerned shoppers * Q&A * profiles of 2 child labor campaigns and 3 sweatshop campaigns * a copy of the anti-sweatshop resolution passed by an Ohio city council * further resources * Campaign for Labor Rights newsletter, with updates on campaigns profiled in the packet

Separate versions for the U.S. and Canada.

There is nothing else like this available. The sweatshop curriculum packet is campaign-oriented. It presents a highly abstract concept -- global economics -- in concrete terms. Throughout the packet, issues are framed with reference to two specific campaigns dealing with child labor (FoulBall and Rugmark) and three specific campaigns dealing with sweatshop practices (Nike, Disney, Guess). The packet discusses sweatshop issues both at home and overseas.

For use in classrooms for 4th through 12th grade students. The material is not divided by grade levels. Instead, teachers are invited to select and adapt as appropriate for their students.

By pre-pay only: $12.50 to U.S. addresses; $12.50 US currency or $20.00 Canadian currency to Canadian addresses. ALL ORDERS: Add $2.50 (per order, not per packet) for shipping and handling. Send check or money order to Labor/Community Alliance, P.O. Box 5077, Fresno Ca 93755. Email address: clr2@igc.apc.org.
