Each group (3 students in each group) will review two different recent attempts to trace commodity chains that uncover the hidden processes behind the production of commodites (processes so often hidden by commodity fetishism). Using ideas and evidence from these sites, each group will develop a teaching tool that could be used in secondary school classrooms to explain the commodity chains behind brand-name products. The teaching tool will be posted to NewsActivist and shared with other Cegep and university classes.
