Abstract

This research discusses opportunities for educators to introduce popular media into their curriculum, particularly when discussing unionization and the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). We have identified a series of scenes in the NBC workplace comedy, Superstore, and provide discussion prompts for instructors to use as a review of their lesson on the NLRA. All scenes mentioned in the paper are available online for instructors to embed in their learning management systems or slide decks.

Keywords: Active learning, human resource management, popular culture, National Labor Relations Act
