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

Highly informative, often shocking and eye-opening! THE CORPORATION presents compelling and original perspectives on the origin,nature, expansion and effects of the modern corporate institution that dominates the economy, polity culture and everyday life of most of the earth's inhabitants, while also depicting individuals and groups struggling against corporate domination.
