ABSTRACT: A creative and useful solution for teaching multi-jurisdictional taxation was found and successfully implemented. The revised course pedagogy better meets the needs of a student body with wide-ranging differences in prior business experience and preparation for the course when the 150-hour requirement resulted in an influx of five-year full-time graduate students. The new course methodology incorporates Pietra Rivoli’s award-winning documentary The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy. The author tells the life story of a T-shirt, beginning with the cotton grown for the shirt’s manufacture in a field in Texas and concluding with the shirt’s sale in a secondhand market in Tanzania. Course evaluations improved in all dimensions after the addition of the auxiliary text in spite of a perception of increased difficulty.
