TVO Teachers Resource

Television Ontario has developed a comprehensive study guide to use as a teachers' resource, generously provided by The Ontario Institute of Studies in Education of the University of Toronto. This website provides curriculum correlations, lesson ideas, and reproducible blackline masters for a variety of secondary school courses.

It is intended to provide teachers with ideas and resources that allow them to structure lessons relating to TVO's 3-part series of The Corporation. A list of relevant Internet Web sites that represent different points of view has also been provided to allow for extensions of content in the film. Key themes that are covered include:

  • Ethics
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Politics and ideology
  • Economic and social interdependence among individuals, corporations and nations
  • Impacts of commercial activity on individuals, communities and the environment
  • Impacts of globalization

Quotes

THE CORPORATION raises questions about the enduring viability and value of the corporation as the primary vehicle for organizing the production of wealth in market-based societies. It raises important concerns about the impact of the corporate structure on a range of public goods and should provoke thinking about whether or not there are better ways to more effectively organize production for the general welfare.
