Description

In this lesson, from the New York Times Learning Network, students participate in a simulation in which they are assigned different work roles (cleaners, line workers, and supervisors). The students are then asked to compare their experiences to those discussed in a "New York Times" article about the racial divisions that exist among workers assigned to different tasks in a pork production plant.
