Lyddie: Unit3 lesson2

  1. 1. DO NOW Entry Task – Notice & wonder • Look at two pictures • What do you notice? • What do you wonder?
  2. 2. Lyddie Working Today From the pictures: • What questions do you have that would be GOOD research questions?
  3. 3. Lyddie Learning Objectives I can identify and understand the parts of the research process. I can determine the difference between an effective and ineffective research questions.
  4. 4. Lyddie Working Today Researcher’s Roadmap Chart: • Short research project • Final project for the module! • Focus: modern-day garment industry • Read along as we read chart allowed…
  5. 5. Lyddie Working Today Performance Task: Brochure • Let’s read it over • Highlight important parts of this assignment
  6. 6. Lyddie Working Today Performance Task: Brochure • Model: “iCare about the iPhone”
  7. 7. Look in your pocket! Do you have an iPhone? Want to know how it is made? Apple does NOT make iPhones ….but Foxconn, a huge company in China, does!
  8. 8. Foxconn workers stand for long hours and work with dangerous chemicals. Foxconn workers sometimes work 90 hours a week. (2x the time you spend in school) Foxconn workers get $1.78 an hour – less than 10% of the money you pay goes to the person who helped make it. Some employee suicides may be due to repetitive, isolating work. Foxconn provides apartments for workers, bu they have to sleep with many people in each room. Things are improving… • Recently Foxconn stopped workers from working overtime but did not cut pay. • Workers say they are thankful for the job and want more money.
  9. 9. The truth is, Apple isn’t the only company that uses Foxconn products. Many major brands do! If you stopped buying iPhones, the workers would not have jobs, so don’t stop buying. DO start pressuring. Find out more. Write a letter to Apple saying that you care about how iPhones are made. YOUR VOICE MATTERS.

  11. 11. Lyddie Working Today Performance Task: Brochure • How is the “iPhone” model related to working conditions? • How does it relate to yesterday’s class?
  12. 12. Lyddie Working Today Researcher’s Roadmap Chart: • START: with the overarching question: What are the working conditions like in the electronics industry? Find the card & put it on the map!! **Psst….it might be under YOUR chair!
  13. 13. Lyddie Working Today Researcher’s Roadmap Chart: • CONTINUE: Step 2: I wanted to find the basic overview of the process of making electronics before I began thinking about working conditions. Find the card & put it on the map!!
  14. 14. Lyddie Working Today Researcher’s Roadmap Chart: • CONTINUE: Step 3: The first website I went to was called Investopedia. I decided that it was a credible site, and I skimmed it to find some information. From there, I found out that many of our electronic products were made by a company called Foxconn in China and, in fact, they make the iPhones. So I now had a more specific question: What is it like to work in a Foxconn factory?
  15. 15. Lyddie Working Today Researcher’s Roadmap Chart: • CONTINUE: Step 4: I also decided that “electronic” was very broad, so I narrowed it down to making iPhones because I was very interested in that and I thought it would be a good case study – a detailed example that has been studied a lot and can help me infer about the larger subject of electronics.
  16. 16. Lyddie Working Today Researcher’s Roadmap Chart: • CONTINUE: Step 5: Then I began to search some more. On the first Website, the author talked about a report on a TV show on ABC called Nightline. I decided a national TV show would be a credible source, so I went there first.
  17. 17. Lyddie Working Today Researcher’s Roadmap Chart: • CONTINUE: Step 6: I skimmed through the slide show based on the TV report and found some of the information for which I was looking. I didn’t watch the whole TV show because I was just skimming.
  18. 18. Lyddie Working Today Researcher’s Roadmap Chart: • FINISH? Step 7: Then I stopped and reassessed. I had lots of negative information, but this gave me more questions: • Was there anything positive about working in these factories? • Why are people working there? • Has Foxconn changed anything since these reports came out?
  19. 19. Lyddie Working Today Sorting Questions: • AT THE CLOSED WINDOW partners • Practice with MY research on iPhones • Read & sort each question • Effective question? • Ineffective question?
  20. 20. Lyddie Working Today Check your answers – EFFECTIVE: • Who makes the iPhone in China? • Does more than one company make the iPhone? • How many hours does the average factory employee work each week? • What is a “living wage” in China? Does the iPhone factory pay a living wage? • Who monitors the working conditions in the iPhone factories?
  21. 21. Lyddie Working Today Check your answers – EFFECTIVE: • Has Apple does anything recently to improve the working conditions in the iPhone factories? • Do children work in any iPhone factories? • Can iPhone factory workers form unions? • How much does it cost to make an iPhone? How much of that cost is labor?
  22. 22. Lyddie Working Today Researcher’s Notebook • Pick ONE of the Effective questions we just listed • Write it in Part II of the notebook (model)
  23. 23. Lyddie Homework Homework! • Independent Reading Book (15-20 min)
