Abstract:

This paper presents a module design and implementation strategy for use in an undergraduate course on globalization, international political economy, or related topic. Students are first asked to conduct research on their wardrobe and its origins by country, allowing for classroom discussion of research methods and designs. Results are submitted, along with a short response essay. This is evaluated in conjunction with a case study short-reading and shared discussion, followed by a short video/multimedia presentation on free trade and labor issues.
I argue that this presents a more cohesive approach for engaging students in the material on a substantive level, while at the same time allowing them to actively appreciate and understand such diverse concepts as commodity chains, free trade zones, fair trade vs. free trade, gendered divisions of labor, consumer responsibility, research methodologies, and macroeconomic shifts in employment across nations. Preliminary data and classroom results are discussed, as are additional strategies for lesson development.
