Human Rights Unit Plans & Activities
This is a unit I have designed (and have recently taught) for the new International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) Humanities guide based on 'Human Rights'.
I currently teach this unit to Year 4 (or grade 9); however, it could be taught in any grade 8 or 9 social studies/civics classroom or within another year of the MYP Humanities programme with little modification. 83 pages in total.
Included in addition to unit plans:
*** a variety and range of resources
- readings, copies of UDHR, student-friendly version of UDHR, two videos based on UDHR, History of Human Rights PowerPoint
*** class activities and assessment tasks with rubrics
- History of Human Rights - UDHR Student Presentation Activity - UDHR Top Ten Task! - Human Rights Exam - Human Rights Violation Analysis and Infographic
*** samples of student work
- history of human rights presentation, infographic assignment and analysis (7 samples)
