McCardle, Elizabeth, Ed.
This unit on human rights designed for secondary students in Alberta, Canada includes both student and teacher manuals. Eleven chapters in the student manual examine what human rights are, the causes and effects of prejudice and discrimination, relevant laws, and social action. Each chapter includes readings followed by discussion questions and learning activities. Subjects discussed include male/female stereotyping, theories and consequences of prejudice, natives and other ethnic groups, the Individual Rights Protection Act of Alberta, the individual's rights and society, and social action. A separate section is devoted to the Hutterities, a minority group in Alberta who are often victims of prejudice. Learning activities include choosing a tenant for your house from six applicants, selecting advertisements which display sexual stereotyping, and examining cartoon stereotypes. Pre- and post opinion surveys are included in the student manual. The teachers' manual provides the rationale, objectives, and additional learning activities and discussion questions for each chapter as well as a general bibliography. (KC)
