Human rights intro

March 12, 2015 · No Comments · Grade 10 Individuals and Societies

What are human rights? Are they easy to define?  What are the basic freedoms and entitlements of every human being?  How should we protect these freedoms and entitlements?

Human Rights activity.  Have you ever experienced limits on your freedom of expression (this could be in what you say, write or wear)?  How did the this make you feel? Do you believe that the restrictions made sense and were fair?  Share your story with someone in the class.

Now choose one of the thirty articles on UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and be able to explain it to the class.

State one example of how that article is not being followed and why? and an example of where it is and why? this is to be finished for homework.

i.e. Article 4: No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.  In your words “No slavery of any kind”.  And then some examples of where slavery exists and why it has not been stopped?
