TEACH FOR RIGHTS
Human rights education in schools is critical to building empowered
societies who know and can realise their rights.
Each year we produce a lesson plan for teachers to use as part of the Write for rights campaign. It’s a simple resource that has been produced by practicing teachers. Lesson plans along with supporting materials can be printed out for your classroom.
The lesson plan has been created with the NAPLAN persuasive text type in mind. It would be most appropriate for a literacy lesson or as part of a SOSE/HSIE lesson about human rights, non-governmental organisations or global citizenship. It is designed to be implemented in two 45– 50 minute class sessions or one 75–minute session, but there are many ways it can be expanded and made into a more in-depth lesson, depending on the needs and time available in your classroom.
