Honing Human Rights in the L[subscript 2] Classroom: Pedagogical Possibilities Using Films
Praveen, C.
Online Submission
Developing an understanding about human rights documents, and an awareness of human rights institutions and mechanisms of protection have become especially significant in the 21st century. Several classroom strategies have hitherto been employed to practice and experience human rights behaviour. Usually topics on human rights is introduced through printed materials such as text books. Given the fact that, the present generation of learners are more accustomed to watching films to reading, this project attempts to tap film clippings and sessions in the English classroom to introduce students to human rights issues. It is hoped that such a strategy would make the transaction part of human rights education both interesting and effective. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) is appended.
