Human Rights in the Curriculum: French

KS3: ages 11-14KS4: ages 14-16Book

The book is divided into three parts, with the majority of space given over to classroom activities with worksheets and other materials.

Section one provides an introduction to human rights education and links the resource to the National Curriculum for Modern Foriegn Languages.

Section two contains 16 classroom activities in five thematic sections, namely: les droits humains dans la vie quotidienne; vie publique – vie privée; le travail; dans notre monde; des Droits de l’Homme aux droits humains.

The third section contains simplified versions, in French, of the Universal Declaration, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the International Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. There is a brief glossary in English, a page of websites and organisations and an index.

Most of the material has been adapted from English language sources, but there is a global dimension in that the case studies are taken from four continents. Everything is provided for the teacher and the activities encourage talk and reflection as well as vocabulary building.
