Message to the youth

Brian gave a talk to a group of Chicago Public Schools teachers at the University of Chicago Center for International Studies’ 2009 Summer Teacher Institute. The talk encouraged teaching on the circulation of natural resources in the world economy, with case studies on informal scrappers in Chicago as well as mineral extraction in the Democratic Republic of Congo. You can watch the talk here:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

A group of K-12 science teachers developed a curriculum unit based on the material, which will be available by the end of the summer on the Summer Institute webpage.

Thanks to support for Scrappers from the Chicago Instructional Technology Foundation, the film will be made available after its release to all interested CPS teachers in their schools via CITF’s EBS broadcast system.
