It’s fairly standard practice in A level sociology to teach that transnational corporations are basically evil and harm developing countries. I subverted this a little bit today and got students to make presentations assessing this view.
The instructions were quite simple:
- Outline four case studies of corporations harming developing countries.
- Outline three to four imitations of the above evidence/ criticisms of the view that Corporations harm developing countries.
- Suggest what strategies might be adopted to make TNCs more effective agencies of development.
Here are some of the posters they knocked up… there’s some excellent work here!
You just CANNOT go wrong with a poster session!
