Human Right Number Nine

No Unfair Detainment

Nobody has the right to put us in prison without good reason and keep us there, or to send us away from our country.

Discussion Topics

We all have unique and wonderful qualities. Have each student name out someone who has an unusual or exceptional quality that they admire.

We all have different abilities in different areas. Have the students name two people outside of the classroom and identify a different ability each person has. (Do not let the students name an inability. Keep it positive.)

Activities

Research their schools detention policy. Decide if these rules are fair, if they’re easily enforced and can be done so well. Look at if and how these rules can be improved. Compile suggestions and submit them to the school. 

Important Note

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.
