Lost Futures: The Problem of Child Labor. A Teacher's Guide.
American Federation of Teachers, Washington, DC.
As the world embarks on a new millennium, the reality of child labor in developing and industrialized nations seems daunting. This teacher's guide is designed to introduce the subject of child labor to middle school students. The guide's intent is to provide teachers with ideas and suggestions that will help them in preparing their own lesson plans. The guide is divided into the following sections: (1) "Resources and Background Information"; (2) "Lesson Plan Ideas"; (3) "Plays, Stories and Poems"; (4) "Glossary"; and (5) "Documents." The lesson plan section provides nine diverse activities, including questions to answer while watching an accompanying videotape, a crossword puzzle, a debate exercise on U.S. intervention, writing assignment ideas, and multidisciplinary exercises.
