Human Rights and China. Lesson Units.
Holmes, Stanley T.
This curriculum unit presents lessons based on information and ideas gained from a 1994 Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminar Abroad Program in the People's Republic of China. This series of three lessons is created as an introduction to Model United Nations types of activities for high school students. Lesson 1, "What are Human Rights?" deals with concepts and definitions of human rights. Lesson 2, "Chinese and American Concepts of Human Rights," enables students to compare the human rights perspectives of China and the USA, with the lesson culminating in forums where students role-play advocates of differing positions on human rights issues. Lesson 3, "Multilateral Human Rights Forums," provides ideas for additional interactive situations for further consideration of human rights and other important political topics. An extensive section of appendices follows the lessons and provides teachers the necessary materials with which to conduct the lessons. (EH)
