The teaching aims of this lesson are to give students an understanding of the different factors that influence choice and what we mean by the term ethical consumerism, and an understanding of the meaning of the term ‘fair trade’.
Students will be able to recognise that there are many ‘ethical’ factors that can affect the way in which consumers make their choices and decisions, the importance of recycling, the different methods used by other countries to produce goods and they should be able to make more-informed decisions on which goods they purchase.
