Fairtrade Schools Pack

Source: Debt and Development Coalition Ireland

This resource comprises a step-by-step CSPE module of work on the concept of INTERDEPENDENCE, using Fairtrade as a working example of interdependence in the real world. The site is designed in a series of steps that take the teacher and students from initial introduction of the concept of interdependence, through to ideas for Action Projects, reference to writing up the Report on Action Project (RAP) or Course Work Assessment Book (CWAB), and revising for the examination paper. The aim of each step is clearly defined, resources needed - if any - are outlined, and the classroom process is explained. All information/worksheets/quiz sheets etc. are downloadable and can be photocopied. The module is 12 weeks in duration, including completion of an Action Project:
