Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To become familiar with basic human rights which have been identified by the United Nations, as well as two groups who have had these rights denied to them since the end of World War II.

TIME:
2 class periods

The lesson begins by reading with the class a brief introductory paragraph about the creation of the Commission on Human Rights by the United Nations. Students then read through the commission's Universal Declaration of Human Rights (included on the first four lesson pages) and will underline or highlight each human right that it mentions.

Next, class members are given a copy of the fifth lesson page, which contains a series of key sentences and phrases from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Students work to fill in the missing words and can use the document on the preceding pages, if necessary.

To conclude the activity, students read about two groups -- blacks in South Africa and the Kurds -- that continued to have their human rights violated despite the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. For each one, class members are asked to list 3 rights or freedoms mentioned in the UN document which were denied to these people.
