A Guide to Human Rights Education. Bulletin 43.
Hines, Paul D.; Wood, Leslie
Background information and teaching suggestions are offered in this guide for implementing human rights ideas in existing social studies curriculum at the elementary and secondary grade levels in the United States. Emphasis is upon equal universal rights for every person as a concern of education and action. The introduction presents an address by Chief Justice Warren entitled "Continuing Action for Human Rights." The remainder of the guide is arranged into four chapters. Chapter one briefly traces the history of human rights from Hammurabi's Code up to 1945. Chapters two and three deal with man's continuing struggle for human rights after 1945 through agencies of the United Nations. These chapters focus on discussion of specific human rights documents; formation of human rights documents; conventions; the basis of, implementation problems of, and future development of human rights. In chapter four twenty strategies are suggested, ranging in scope from role playing activities to establishing a United Nations day to referral to Centers. An appendix contains twelve human rights documents. A selected human rights bibliography includes forty-six annotated book citations and lists filmstrips, phonograph records, tapes, and transparencies. (SJM)
