New collection of free online teaching resources
Trade Aid is excited to present a new collection of free online innovative and inspiring teaching resources. The resource supports teachers and students to explore the economic world, and trade in particular. It takes a concept and issues-based approach, using critical thinking and actions to consider people’s participation in trade relationships, and the challenges of economic disparity.

What teachers say:
“I like the concept focus and the focus on critical thinking. In particular I like the inclusion of Socratic frameworks for learning and discussion. I also like the categories – critical thinking, concepts, actions and issues – this is clear and easy to follow. The contemporary nature of some of the topics is awesome too; the linkages are very straightforward and the website links were easy and logical to follow.” – Sally Beccard, Wellington Girls College
“Useful and interesting and a good reminder to include more student focused activities and promote critical thinking of issues. The students enjoyed the ethical fashion report and conversations around this and are much more aware and interested in products they purchase and use now. There were many comments on the disadvantages of globalisation and good things about fair trade.” – Joy Butler and Elizabeth Wright, St Orans’ College
“Navigation was very easy, intuitive. I was excited about the activity I trialled.” – Ricky Prebble, Wellington East Girls’ College
“Overall a high quality resource pack with the ability to pick and choose a selection of resources to suit a learning programme. The Weebly is easy to navigate and download resources from. It’s good that they are available on-line and able to be used for students with BYOD as well as print resources. I like the focus on key concepts and the teacher support materials that support essential skills e.g. critical literacy and thinking.” – Tonya Calverley, Kings High School
Here at Trade Aid, we’re passionate about achieving trade justice through our work and teaching other people about this.
In fact, it’s so important to us that educating about trade justice is one of the three objectives we have in the Charter which guides all our work.
We aim to equip teachers with relevant topical tools and resources to bring the teaching of trade justice issues to life in your classroom, and to inspire your students as global citizens. Our approach is to encourage critical thinking through raising students’ awareness of current disparities in world trade and leave them empowered, wanting to learn more and informed to make their own personal choices from what they have learned. Explore our resources and tools below.
We have a range of curriculum resources available for use in your classroom, along with a variety of other activities designed to bring trade justice to life in your classroom. Learn more about how Trade Aid can help you bring your classroom to life
