Resources for Teachers
Here are some teaching resources to help teachers connect the topic of child labour to lessons in the school and classroom.
- Child Labour: Costly at Any Price (1998)
This teacher resource book was written to help educators raise the awareness of their students on the issue of child labour. The document looks at the causes and consequences of child labour, offers profiles of individual child workers, and explores the family and life circumstances that place them in the poverty cycle. It looks at the global economics of child labour, proposes potential solutions to the problem, and offers ideas for individual and collective action. It also directs teachers and students to a variety of other resources, including books, articles, videos, and related Internet sites. Five lessons with background information are included, and require approximately 10 or 11 class periods of 50 minutes each. Audience: Grades 9, 10, 11.
