How Children Learn about Human Rights. Bulletin, 1951, No. 9
Hill, Wilhelmina; Mackintosh, Helen K.
Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
This particular bulletin is concerned with the concept of human rights, and the interpretation of some of these rights in the classroom, in the school, at home, and in the community. Although the discussion is directed toward the classroom teacher primarily, principals, supervisors, administrators, and parents who want children to succeed in all the activities of everyday living, should find the bulletin profitable reading. The bulletin consists of sections on how the teacher can begin with children in a study of individual rights, in such a way as to lead to an understanding of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The teacher understands, of course, that this bulletin deals with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and not with the Covenant on Human Rights, which is still under consideration by the members of the United Nations. This understanding would also be made clear to children in any instructional situation which deals with these materials. Some Articles of the Declaration in which elementary school children can see relationships to their own problems are singled out for special mention. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
