Teachers & schools

War on Want can offer plenty of free materials on sweatshops and other topics for Key Stages 4/5. You can order materials here or email Nadia.

We can also provide 1 - 1 1/2 hour workshops on sweatshops to Key Stage 3/4 classes of 10-40 students.

In that time we will:

  • Do a fun warm up exercise
  • Find out about the history of sweatshops
  • Learn and discuss why and how sweatshop exploitation exists
  • Understand how citizens of the UK can make a difference
  • Find out inspiring stories about people in Bangladesh and other countries who are winning their rights
  • Watch and discuss a short campaigning film

In that time, students will engage in:

  • Group work
  • Discussion
  • Interpreting photographs
  • Summarising arguments
  • Answering questions

We can also come provide a speaker for panel discussions for sixth formers & college campaign groups.

Have a look what year 11s did at Central Foundation Girls School, East London.

Have a look at what year 10s did at George Green school, East London.

This repressive treatment of Omar Barghouti and other Palestinian human rights defenders shows that Israel is cementing its system of violence and discrimination towards Palestinians. The repression of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) activists only proves why it is so necessary in the first place, and will only make the movement grow more.
