-------------------------------------- Colleagues At the request of Elizabeth Cohn, the author, I am forwarding to you information about a Wal-mart curriculum she has devised. I imagine you can tell for yourselves why it may be interesting to our members. My best regards Bob Ross Recently released: "Wal-Mart: A College Curriculum." Many college professors already use Wal-Mart as a case study in the classroom, in courses as wide-ranging as business ethics, urban planning, global studies, women's studies, labor history, sociology and management. This 37-page curriculum is structured not as an integrated course curriculum, but rather as a series of five modules that allow faculty to select the parts that pertain to their own areas of teaching. The curriculum suggests more than 70 carefully chosen readings, covering a broad spectrum of opinion. As part of each teaching module, author Elizabeth Cohn, a college professor for the last ten years, includes introductions, discussion questions and suggested assignments. The curriculum was released in December 2005 by Wal-Mart Watch, a campaign of the Center for Community & Corporate Ethics. Copies of "Wal-Mart: A College Curriculum" are available at http://www.walmartwatch.com/curriculum. Comments are welcomed at facultyfeedback@c... Robert J.S.
