Announcing Our Newest Curriculum Unit: Teaching about Rights!
Posted: August 13, 2012
Inspired by Hemispheres's 2008 Summer Teachers' Institute, Recognizing Rights and Responsibilities in the 21st Century, this curriculum unit was designed to examine the development of the concept of human rights over time. Throughout the unit, students use primary sources to examine the gradual bestowal of rights on different groups, the rights currently guaranteed by individual countries and international bodies, and the areas where rights continue to be in conflict. The unit ends with a discussion of emerging areas of human rights.
The unit is now available to download in the Curriculum and Online Resources section of the Hemispheres Web site.
