What lies behind Cheap Clothes? Raising awareness on Teens

It was a complete shock for my students today to come to terms to reality as far as the textile industry is concerned. They couldn't believe that the clothes we all wear are the result of brutal exploitation, including child labour in particular Asian countries. Why not devote some minutes to discuss this in the English classroom?
Ice-breaker video
GO on with simple questions: What do you normally buy? Where? Have you checked your T-shirt label to see where it was made? Do you know that there are (a recent innovation) labels warning that the piece of clothing you are about to buy is child labour free? What are the alternatives to your usual shops?

Human Rights Project for Bachillerato (AS) Level


Let's put our heads together so that we are able to show the world our concern about Human Rights. Everybody talks about them, but not everybody worries about them. If we are able to make our nearest community aware of their importance, we will be helping to make the world a better place.
Here you are the document which states the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS (UDHR) in English.

What do you have to do?
1) Read the declaration and choose the Human Right you want to work with.
2) Take a photograph where that Right is pictured in an original and plastic way.
3) Post your photo on twitter with following hashtag #mycausePA16 

You can also go to the following web for further information on the subject: Youthforhumanrights.
