Universal Declaration of Human Rights in the Classroom

April 16, 2021 - 12:23 PM
For several years, I have encouraged pre-service teachers to incorporate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights into their classrooms.  The UDHR provides ethical criteria for students to use when assessing historical and current events.  This morning I had the great pleasure of joining the South Carolina Social Studies Supervisors Association, to share a bit about using the UDHR in the classroom.  Please check out the UDHR introductory presentation PowerPoint, and consider using the Declaration in your own classroom.  Don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions about how to incorporate this powerful document into your own practice.
