Teaching Human Rights: Grades 7 through Adult.
Shiman, David A.
This curriculum resource on human rights is rooted in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and seeks to help students understand the issues involved. Using the rights categories suggested by the Universal Declaration, this book offers new ways of teaching about familiar themes. The book contains activities to encourage students to compare across cultures and to challenge them to examine their own society and to reflect on their own lives. There are generic human rights activities that can be used for any part of the world to be studied, as well as those dealing specifically with examples from Chile, the Peoples Republic of China, Kenya, South Africa, and the former Soviet Union.
