The Corporation (movie)

The Corporation is today's dominant institution, creating great wealth but also great harm. This 26 award-winning documentary examines the nature, evolution, impacts and future of the modern business corporation and the increasing role it plays in society and our everyday lives.

This website is intended to provide teachers with ideas and resources that allow them to structure lessons relating to TVO's presentation of The Corporation.

It provides curriculum correlations, lesson ideas, and reproducible blackline masters for a variety of secondary school courses. A list of relevant Internet Web sites that represent different points-of-view has also been provided to allow for extensions of content in the film. Key themes that are covered include:
