Teaching Citizenship through Human Rights

KS3: ages 11-14BookPDF

This resource contains a set of 12 tried and tested lesson plans developed by Amnesty International UK with the Ministry of Justice and the British Institute of Human Rights. It is designed to teach citizenship from a human rights perspective, and encourages students to explore the role of human rights in everyday life.

It covers human rights concepts, values and the content of key treaties such as the UK Human Rights Act and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Some lessons explore current issues such as homophobic bullying, child poverty and identity / diversity from a human rights perspective, whilst others introduce young people to what it means to take action on human rights issues.
