This resource comprises of:
1. A handout for students which includes some definitions (GDP, LEDC, MEDC etc) as well as worksheet-style activities which accompany 2 videos which are freely available online;
2. An answer sheet for the teacher.
The activity is designed to be used in class. For EAL students, the videos can be played more than once and/or paused at relevant points to make the tasks easier.
Extension work could include:
a) Having a debate around globalisation, with some students arguing FOR and others AGAINST.
b) Students researching a particular business as a case study and looking at how it had been impacted by globalisation. The businesses chosen could be multinational corporations such as McDonald's or local businesses that have been affected by larger businesses e.g. a family-run coffee shop compared with Starbucks.
c) Students making their own video, like the second one featured as part of the activity which was created by a Y8 student. Students could work individually or in pairs or small groups and could evaluate each other's work afterwards.
