Consumer Protection Laws

(1)
An activity to teach consumer protection including consumer protection act, sale of goods and trade description. Students are given the information and a lit of case studies, in small groups they are to decide whether a law has been broken, which one, why and what action might be taken. A really engaging lesson as students work together to come to a conclusion. At the end of the lesson a whole class discussion can be completed to check answers. IN RESPONSE TO RATING: I am not quite sure what the purchaser was expecting, what I am selling is a way to teach a lesson and the resources needed. I would suggest the following: 0-10 Starter: Write on books/post-its examples of when they think they have been treated badly by a business (and feedback from starter) 10-20: Introduce consumer protection laws 20-45: Put students into small groups and ask them to read the information sheets and work out for each mini case study whether a law has been broken and what law might have been broken. 45-55: Class feedback 55-60: Set your own homework or plenary Would welcome further constructive feedback.
