Our students know a lot about the things they wear, eat and use every day. After all, who pays more attention to the price and characteristics of a new iPod, outfit or shrimp dinner than a teenager? But in our globalized world, many of the basic resources that compose these goods are extracted, refined and processed far away under obscure systems that mask some hard truths. Using vivid reporting by Pulitzer Center journalists, we will explore the untold process that links shrimp, oil, chocolate, gold and other extracted resources to the products we buy at our local stores. You will learn how you can use Pulitzer Center reporting and educational materials to engage your students on these issues, weaving together themes of environmental awareness, workers' rights, human rights, national borders, ethnic migrations, urbanization and government and corporate transparency.
