Written and edited by Campaign for Labor Rights staff, the Global
Sweatshop Curriculum Packet has more than 50 pages of useful
information for teachers wanting to present this timely and important
topic in their classroom: key terms, classroom exercises, background
on several high-profile sweatshop and child labor campaigns, Q&A,
further resources, profiles of young activists and their work and
more -- all presented in classroom language. 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.

The packet is intended 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.

This resource is by PRE-PAY ONLY: $12.50 (US) to U.S. addresses,
$20.00 (Canadian) to Canadian addresses. Send check or money order
to Campaign for Labor Rights, 1247 "E" Street SE, Washington, DC
