Fair Trade – SU 32-35

Continuing with the development work. Today’s topic- Fair Trade, which is also our controlled assessment task for this year. I’ve adapted some Key Stage 3 resources from the food topic.

I wanted to take a source-based approach.

I’m going to start the theme by watching a Channel 4 programme for schools called ‘Consumer Power- Chocolate’, it was online at Teachers TV but can no longer be found in the search, it provides a good overview of the conditions faced by cocoa farmers and the issues related to the trade.

Also found this video which I feel gives a good overview of the concept of Fair Trade.

I’ve then produced two pen portraits of cocoa farmers, adapted from real case studies, but emphasising the areas I wanted. Followed by a task considering the arguments for and against the concept of Fair Trade.

Whilst using these sources I want students to summarise their findings in the sheet provided, which I’ll then go over using the following presentation, well that’s the plan…

P.S. mustn’t forget a little tasting 🙂

    The Consumer power chocolate is still there on Teachers TV.. 🙂


    Some fabulous resources Tony, as a non-specialist teaching geography for the first time this year they are invaluable.
