Antiglobalization

Here is a reading on the antiglobalization movement in the United States along with its attendant vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet.

Because this relatively short reading focuses on the United States, it serves only as a general introduction to a movement that is, well, global in scale. If you scroll down from here to the sixth post below this one, you’ll find a reading and comprehension worksheet on the Bretton Woods Conference that might complement this reading–or vice versa.

I’d like to thank friend of the blog Adelaide Dupont, who called my attention to a typo in the reading in this post.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.

    Hi Mark,

    I found a typo in the anti-globalization paper.

    It is in the first point which begins:

    “1. In 2004, a poll founud that 38 percent of Americans thought NAFTA had been good for the United States, while 46 percent thought its impact was negative.”

    [there had been an extra U in “found”].

    I have not seen the vocabulary building and comprehension sheet.

    Adelaide

    PS: THE JUNGLE is a good read.
