A Guide for Improving Teacher Education in Human Rights.
Eyster, Ira M.
This guide discusses the need for and ways of implementing human and civil rights education in the teacher education program and in the public schools. One section analyzes specific rights, such as equality of opportunity, free speech, and freedom of assembly, and lists some typical behaviors of institutions--both colleges and public schools--which exemplify a commitment to rights or which appear to be a violation of them. Another short section lists democratic educational processes, such as discussion and cooperative planning, and points suggestions for incorporating human and civil rights education into the teacher education program--both preservice and inservice. Suggestions for the preservice program include discussion of content, activities, timing, and ways of incorporating this content into existing education courses. The section on inservice education includes a sample schedule for a 2-day conference and a sample list of objectives and activities for a 1-week workshop. (RT)
