Teaching human rights; a handbook for teachers by United Nations( Book )

13 editions published between 1959 and 1963 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike classroom instruction in the traditional disciplines, the teaching of human rights does not involve the memorizing of texts or acquisition of problem-solving skills, it is rather a matter of creating basic attitudes of tolerance and goodwill in the receptive minds of children. An understanding of the experiences and problems encountered by dedicated teachers in different parts of the world as they try to teach human rights will hopefully inspire teachers in other countries to devise their own experiments in this important field of endeavor. A 2-year project was enacted in a girls' secondary school in ecuador to draw attention to the local and national scene in that country as a means of developing knowledge of human rights and a concern for those whose rights were being denied. The theme of the program was "the rights of women." Field work and inquiries were made as to the status of women in different regions of the country. Every opportunity was also taken to study the place of women in other cultural areas and in other times. Other projects discussed include a british secondary school "project-study" of human rights, a japanese effort to combat prejudice against koreans, a canadian secondary school study of the race question, and the higher horizons program of new york city
