Dunkerly-Bean, Judith; Bean, Thomas; Alnajjar, Khaled
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v58 n3 p230-241 Nov 2014
The purpose of this study was to explore middle school (grade 6-8) students' understanding and interpretation of human rights issues with local and global implications as they engaged in the process of creating a film after reading print and multimedia texts and participating in human rights education activities. As the students explored issues related to local/global human rights from a cosmopolitan critical literacy perspective, their understanding of the interrelatedness of these issues became more complex prompting advocacy efforts.
