Do your students know where their stuff comes from? Chances
are, their favorite products have traveled a great distance to get to them. In
this LAP, students will discover the impact of globalization – both on their
everyday lives and on the buying and selling of goods across the world. They
will learn why countries engage in global trade, the economic benefits of
global trade, and the many barriers to trade. In the Gray Zone, students will
examine the ethicality of sweat-shop labor, an important and controversial
issue facing many multinational corporations today.
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about global trade, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 16 slides.
"The Gray Zone was a really good ethical discussion on a product students LOVE!"
