Exploring human rights and finding what sparks you
Fundamental to Rock Your World is first teaching students about human rights, and then giving them ample time to explore a variety of issues until they identify one that ‘sparks’ or inspires them to action. In this unit, students learn about human rights by reading and considering the implications of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Students will also view and evaluate various interpretations of the UDHR and then have the opportunity to create original interpretations of their own.
