Why Are Human Rights Important?
The historical struggle for human rights is something that affects us, our children and future generations as we fight for equity and inclusion in an increasingly torn society. It can also be difficult to speak with students about sensitive subjects, but at Share My Lesson we provide expertly curated lesson plans, resources, and activities that define these rights, develop a global awareness, and teach how we can all make a difference when we act together to improve the lives of citizens, immigrants and refugees alike.
With resources from organizations such as the American Federation of Teachers, Makematic, Facing History and Ourselves, ADL and the Global Oneness Project, you can feel comfortable tackling these difficult conversations with your students. Get started with these free lesson plans here.
