Human Right Number Two
These rights belong to everybody, whatever our differences.
Cover all the various types of discrimination that can exist besides racial, such as gender, disability, religious, clothing/style, age, financial, etc. Ask if they have seen this before in their life and what they can do about it.
*Note - when students present their solutions in a discussion, refrain from correcting or pointing out the errors, if they have genuinely tried to create a worthy idea. It is their personal creation. Congratulate them or simply thank them for their work. This is an exercise that contains educational value in the attempt alone.
Creating a poster that reflects a wide variety of people and their unity. Can do individual posters/drawings that are displayed or a big group project that is able to be hung in the school.
Resist the temptation to play all 30 human rights videos at this point. Save those for each meeting that follows. Carry out the activities and let your students’ own visions of the 30 human rights materialize as the lessons unfold, one at a time.
We would love feedback on your first week and to see pictures of your group participating in these activities! Please submit to us below:
