Product Description

Grades 8-12: Students collaborate to make a PSA that describes a current human rights violation and justifies two US interventions to address that violation. The project includes the following:

  • suggested human rights violations that are appropriate for students in grades 8-12 to consider
  • links to current resources to gather information about that violations
  • a slide presentation with 20+ foreign policy tool interventions for the US
  • a template for gathering information
  • a template for identifying and defending the suggested interventions
  • an exemplar script for the PSA
  • an exemplar justification template for the individual part of the project
  • a rubric

The project aligns with these academic standards from the National Council for the Social Studies:

  • Universal human rights cut across cultures but are not necessarily understood in the same way in all cultures
  • Developing and making a presentation on the strategies that can be used by a society or nation to facilitate peaceful relations with other societies or nations
  • Explore the causes, consequences, and possible solutions related to persistent, current, and emerging global issues, such as health, resource allocation, economic development, and environmental quality
  • Analyze examples of conflict, cooperation, and interdependence among groups, communities, regions, societies, and nations
  • Developing and sharing policy positions in such forms as position statements, editorials, or political cartoons
  • Describe and explain the relationships and tensions between national sovereignty and global interests in such matters as territorial rights, natural resources, trade, the different uses of technology, and the welfare of people
  • Explore the causes, consequences, and possible solutions related to persistent, current, and emerging global issues, such as health, resource allocation, economic development, and environmental quality
