What are different perspectives on child labor practices? In this investigation, students will think about the concept of perspective–that people’s views are shaped by their experiences, beliefs, and values–as they learn about child labor in the brick kilns in Nepal. Students write a critique of a news story, identifying problems with the news story’s claims, evidence, and reasoning about child labor in Nepal.
