The Global Factory. Union Worker-Family Education Program.
LaMar, Maureen; Schnee, Emily
In the summer of 1991, the Worker-Family Education Program held a workshop for two groups of teachers and students. The workshop was designed to explore an economic trend whereby transnational corporations send production and assembly operations to the Third World in search of cheap labor and to begin a collaborative English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) curriculum development process between teachers, students, and union staff. This manual includes the activities and materials used in the workshop, some of the written and oral responses of the participants, as well as some ideas for future curricula broadly related to this subject. This curriculum is geared towards ESL levels 3 and 4 or General Education Development (GED) classes. However, all the plans and materials can be adapted for use in lower level ESL classes. Nine activities are included, as well as a list of resources, results of oral evaluations, written evaluation forms, and responses to written evaluation.
