Human Right Number Twenty-Six
The Right to Education
Education is a right. Primary school should be free. We should learn about the United Nations and how to get on with others. Our parents can choose what we learn.
Why is it part of this human right that parents can choose what we learn?
Can you also learn things you want to learn?
What do you want to learn? (Do not allow students to say what they do not want to learn. Keep it positive.)
*Go over the items gathered over the previous week for the food drive. Try to get pictures of you donating them to show the students the product they got!
Here are 3 common college essay questions which often determine whether someone gets into college. Have the students pick their favorite(s) and answer them.
1. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?
2. Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome?
3. Describe a favorite book or movie where the main character has to decide something difficult. What did you think about their choice?
Discuss the answers with the group. A few other discussion questions regarding this activity can be:
What do you think the college is trying to learn about you?
Do you like that question?
Do you think that’s a fair question?
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:
How did your meeting/activities go for this human right?
Thank you for your feedback!
