Powerful Consumers

What is a boycott? Use this initial question to draw learners into today's lesson plan. They read "A Weapon For Consumers: The Boycott Returns," and answer a list of reading comprehension questions provided. Then, as a class, brainstorm a list of current and historic boycotts. You might have to aid with this activity, as it would be helpful to point out a good number of examples. Then, break your class into groups and assign each one a different identity. Whether they play the part of a worker, consumer, protester, or organization member, they have a list of questions to answer.
