Teacher compendium for human rights education

The purpose of the Teacher Compendium for Human Rights Education is to develop a heightened awareness and understanding of a range of human rights issues. Many educators are passionately interested in human rights issues but are less certain about how to introduce these issues to their young students. Other educators may be unfamiliar with the range of issues under the umbrella of human rights. Still others believe that their settings or communities might be opposed to the teaching of such issues. Finally, most educators feel pressed to cover the necessary content in current curricula and fear the addition of another topic. This compendium addresses each of these in a practical and engaging format.
