Students have written this:

Naomi Klein’s No Logo By María Cascallana

Naomi talks about how brands affected the world’s economies and governments during the 90s. She wants to find out the key to success of these “multinationals” and the globalization process. Brands aren’t only a product; they are a lifestyle too. Naomi likes to use the term “No Logo” to refer to the movement against corporations.
What is a brand?
It is a way of mass production that involves a name and a slogan that sends a message to consumers. Brans put local business at risk and broke the bond of trust between customers and shopkeepers. Advertisement was used instead by companies to make customers relate and trust into buying their brand – this is marketing.
How big brands gained popularity
Simply by selling a lifestyle. Few examples are Coca Cola appealing to the young while Disney focused more on childhood nostalgia. Others like Benneton, used diversity in its marketing campaign. In other words, these kinds of companies used experiences and lifestyles in their advertising instead of their actual products.
New kind of advertisement
Celebrities (especially singers and rock stars) no longer had to use traditional means od adverts since they themselves were an icon, their own brand logo.
No choice
Brands are everywhere and it is almost impossible to find a product on a store that isn’t a big name brand. Brands are used in pop culture too, like in TV series for instance, proving the great impact they can have on society as a whole. No space or place is advert-free
The Walmart example
It has its own personal aesthetic – an affordable family store, even though it is a big company. Walmart sells all kinds of products at really cheap prices, while its workers are underpaid for their job and product quality isn’t exactly the best.
Brand meaning
What a company sells isn’t as important as what the company name implies. Image and brand reputation are put into a lot more effort than into manufacturing – goods are usually produced in underdeveloped countries where even child workers are exploited in factories.

MANUFACTURING

We have investigated where and how objects are manufactured worldwide. Laura Alvarez has created this research. Click on the pictochart for a better view.

Watch this video and the others related on how polluting the fashion industry is and how can you, as a consumer, make it more sustainable. We will talk then about the importance of clothes and about raising the consciousness about what we wear.

Descubridoras

Women achievements are hardly ever recognised, when they should be even more recognised than others as they had to work in harsh conditions. Nobody helped them. Translate their achievements to tell the class. Distribute the women: each students will talk about one of these discovery women.

Role models

See this video. What makes you think? Read the book STORIES FOR REBEL GIRLS and share your findings with the class. Also watch the face link to check the lack of female role models. As for the boys think of the stereotypes that also have an influence in your choices.

You will do a presentation on a character who is a role model for you explaining why.

Philosophy

In 2ºBACH you have to study the history of the big philosophers. Pick a lesson, listen to these lessons and report next class to your classmates what you learnt. You can start with Plato or Stoicism.

As a follow up homework I also recommend to watch at home the spanish TV series MERLÍ, which is about a teacher of philosophy in a high school. He gives very good lessons to understand philosophy.

Lessons at TED


Finding your element, your passion

Listen to Ken Robinson to reflect on how to find your potential, your element.

More lessons on how to understand your inner potential

Listen and then speak and write on the skills and habits you need to improve or develop and how you can do it.

Students research and then talk about the university they would like to go.
