I am a secondary teacher of English in Southern Spain. I studied MFL in Jaén and I got a DPSI certificate in Law in England. I started my teaching career in Newcastle back in 2000, where I lived for 3 years. Once I returned home, I taught in a public school and got ready to sit the "oposiciones" exam, which I passed!!! Currently, I am teaching in Jaén, which has become my definite residence in Spain since 2004.
Jonathan missed the Culture Class we organised some days ago, but to catch up with the rest of his classmates, he has worked on this presentation about some of the aspects the talk covered. He has kindly sent it to me to share it with you. Hope you will like it ;)
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?
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?
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.
