Introduction:

This lesson is about the Fairtrade movement and offers opportunities to differentiate learning, often through the use of online web tools. Students will consider the effect Fairtrade has on individuals around the world and their own responsibility as consumers living in a developed country. Students are challenged to identify what Fairtrade means and formulate their own opinions about it. This is achieved through a series of activities which involve reading, speaking and listening skills. Vocabulary is presented and practised in context, and the extension/homework task gives students further opportunity to activate language covered during the lesson in the form of a writing task.
