Want to get a really interesting economic conversation going with your students?
Step 1- Tell your students you think sweatshops are a good thing. They will probably look at you as if you are crazy or mean or heartless. (they probably already think this anyway, right?)
Step 2- If they are opposed to sweatshops ask them to explain why they are against them. Have your students explain who is being hurt by sweatshops.
Step 3- Have your students read this.
Step 4- Have the conversation again.
