The Rights of Children in Japan: A Teaching Unit for the Upper Elementary Grades (4-6).
Angell, Ann V.
Designed for grades 4-6, this teaching unit explores children's rights from a comparative perspective by focusing on the rights of Japanese children as revealed in a collection of stories written by Japanese junior high school students. The unit outlines a series of lessons that explore the nature of children's rights and inquire about the extent that young people in Japan enjoy those rights. The unit contains a set of 20 stories that depict the daily lives of Japanese young people. Supplementary materials include: (1) the text of the U.N. Declaration of the Rights of the Child; (2) text of the U.N. Convention of the Rights of the Child; and (3) selected news articles related to children's rights in Japan and published between 1989-90. Four introductory activities and two additional activities provide ideas for working with the stories and text. (CK)
