"To educate is to believe in change."
~ Paolo Freire
This edition of Rights Sites News, entitled "Getting Started," is a primer for all teachers interested in becoming a human rights educator. To make it simple, we have broken down the process into five steps:
Step 1: WHAT Are Human Rights?
Step 2: WHY Adopt Human Rights Education?
Step 3: HOW Do I Teach Human Rights?
Step 4: WHO Should Be Involved?
Step 5: WHERE Can Human Rights Take My Classroom?
Each step answers a basic question and invites you to dig deeper with supplemental resources, tips, and tools. We hope this newsletter marks the beginning of a great adventure into the world of human rights for you and your students.
