"In this lesson, students complete their reading of “Bangladesh Factory Collapse: Who Really Pays for Our Cheap Clothes?” from “So what can be done?” through“We hope none” (pp. 2–3), in which the author elaborates on the specific problems that face safety reform in garment factories and the steps she views as necessary to bring about change. Students work to delineate and evaluate the argument made by McMullen in this article through the Evaluating Argument and Evidence Tool and Assessment, which also serves as the lesson assessment. "
