Bellwork: Type 1:

Do you drink coffee?  Why do you or people you know drink coffee?  Where does it come from?


Today we discussed where coffee comes from, and how free vs fair trade effects the price of coffee.  We played a game trying to decide what the cost of coffee should be and who should get the money for that cost per bag.

Homework: Finish your Type 2 asking:

How does fair trade address the problems we have experienced today in the coffee industry?


EXTRA CREDIT: Watch the Vice Presidential debate tonight.  Create a list of three things the candidates discuss that we have covered up to this point in class.
