Teaching and Learning about Universal Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law: Digital Resources and Global Expectations
Blanchard, Rosemary Ann
Educational Forum, v77 n4 p491-496 2013
Today's education for civic engagement requires a global dimension. To live responsibly in their own communities, young people need to situate their personal and local interests in the context of their global interconnections. Bridging the personal, local, and global begins with an awareness of the universal aspirations for dignity and human rights widely shared across the human family. Increasingly, social educators recognize the need for American students to encounter the fundamental principles of human rights and humanitarian law as part of their own history and civic preparation. This article highlights pedagogically well designed human rights curricula that are available to educators online and typically without cost.
