Product Description

This presentation contains a 28 slide, power point presentation with teacher’s notes.

The DIY movement revolutionized the furniture industry.

The DIY concept started out as a reaction to a growing materialistic society and was meant to give people back the value of hard work and the joy of creation. In order to make DIY products affordable, the compromise was the quality of materials and, with the fast-growing plastic and chemical industries, environmental pollution.

A well-meaning, revolutionary, social and economic idea gave birth to a wasteful toxic “Throw-away society”.

The throw-away society is influenced by consumerism, leading to over consumption and excessive production of short-lived or disposable items over durable goods that can be repaired.

This lesson discusses the idea of DIY, where it went wrong, and possible ways fix it.

This lesson includes:

· What is the DIY concept and what brought it on?

· DIY and flat pack historical examples

· What is an RTA/ KD/ flat pack furniture?

· Advantages for the companies and the costumers

· What is the IKEA effect?

· What is "Planned obsolescence"

· What is the throw-away society and its consequences?

· How is the throw away culture evolving?

· A possible future DIY society

This lesson was created as a conversation lesson with adult ESL students in mind but could be used with high school environmental and social programs.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON BUYING THIS PRODUCT, PLEASE READ THIS:

The products in this shop are all produces by a dyslexic teacher (hence the name).

I’m painfully aware of what seems to be very poor judgment of career choice on my part, and to be honest, a large part of this choice was to stick it to Mrs. Jacobson that said that there’s no place for the likes of me with my “pretend excuses” for misspelling every third word, in any educational institute that respects itself, so naturally I had to become a teacher.

For more than 25 years I’ve been teaching ESL adult classes and cross culture business classes, and much like other challenged individuals who go through life with one hand tied behind their backs, I try to make up for what I lack in the grammar department with hours of research, high quality graphics, humour, passion and love for what I do.

The fact that I can actually do this job is first and foremost a testimony of open mindedness (or desperation brought on by the long economic recession) of the schools that hired me over the years despite my very evident drawback, by the parents that kindly tolerated some grammar mishaps and most of all by my beautiful students who have learned to “always double check their teacher” and have come up with the sweetest, most heart-warming and diplomatic ways of pointing out my errors (putting to great use their newly acquired conditional capacity: “I’m not sure, but, I think I might have spotted…”)

Over the years, I've personally contributed to the economic success of countless computer ‘correcting program’ available on the market (you're welcome Grammarly) and on top of that my lessons are proof read by wonderful, kind (and slightly horrified) TPT teachers, BUT there are always some errors that slip by us (mostly because I keep messing with the lessons after they've been proofread).

  • If you feel offended by the existence of errors in what is supposed to be a teaching tool,
  • or if you, much like Mrs. Jacobson, think the dyslexia is just an excuse not to try harder,

THEN THIS PRODUCT IS NOT FOR YOU!

For all you tree hugging, relaxed, open-minded individuals, that can see beyond the possible grammar errors (maybe even use it as a teaching opportunity ”An extra point for the first student who can spot the obvious grammar error that I always tell you never to make”, plus, you know that wonderful, warm, superior feeling you get when you catch a colleague’s error - well these moments are included with the product – no extra charge), who are looking for challenging, original material for your conversation classes -

THIS PRODUCT IS DEFINITELY FOR YOU! All my lessons are in an editable PPT format and you get a free product if you send me the errors to correct.

I hope this product delivers everything you hoped for and more.

******************************************************************************************

WISH YOU ALL A WONDERFUL AND SUCCESSFUL YEAR!
