International Human Rights, Society, and the Schools. National Council for the Social Studies Bulletin No. 68.
Branson, Margaret Stimmann, Ed.; Torney-Purta, Judith, Ed.
Important issues, concepts, and research related to international human rights are discussed, and instructional guidelines and creative teaching strategies are presented in this resource for K-12 and college social studies/social science teachers. The bulletin consists of an introduction and seven chapters. The introduction discusses three basic approaches to the study of human rights--national, comparative, and international--and examines reasons for teaching human rights education. Chapter 1 presents answers to 15 questions often asked about international human rights. The second chapter urges the linking of education for civic cohesion and cultural pluralism with education for global interdependence. The implications for teachers of socialization and human rights is the topic of chapter 3. How to teach human rights in K-12 schools and in colleges and universities is the focus of chapters 4 through 6. Chapter 7 is an annotated listing of books about human rights for children and youth. Also listed are significant events and documents in international human rights and the text of Universal Declaration of Human Rights. (RM)
