Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people who campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. The website displays lots of resources for the classroom in different languages but today I would like to recommend a human rights cross-curricular teaching resource for secondary schools. It contains eight lesson plans which can be used separately or as part of a series of carefully planned sessions across the year. The accompanying CD-ROM contains all the resources together with short film clips and accompanying resources, which you can also order by filling in this form .
Right below you can find a short summary of each of the lesson plans and the links to access them:
The lessons plans provide you with power point presentations, resource sheets, video clips and teachers' notes. All of these resources can be downloaded for free and you can also order the whole pack of lesson plans by filling in this form.
Plenty of interesting topics for you classroom in English, French and Spanish may be found under the title "Thematic issues" on the United Nations website. Do not miss the special section they have prepared for International Human Rights Day on December 10th
Last but not least, if you wish to work on language thoroughly, you will have a great opportunity to do so by downloading the lesson plan ESL Holiday Lessons offers here.
