Today we wrapped up our coverage for the week on Human Rights and the UDHR.  The bellwork was:

Type 1: Analyze what this quote by President Carter is saying, and why he would say it at this time.

“America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense human rights invented America”

-President Jimmy Carter, 1981 farewell address

We then watched a short clip on how Human Rights came to be.  It shows a brief history of human rights since 3000 B.C. This is the video

After this video we started a poster with a specific article from the UDHR.

The directions were:

Now that you have an understanding of the UDHR, you will be creating a poster explaining to others what they should know about human rights.  The poster has a few basic requirements to creating it. Please follow directions closely

1. You must create two visuals on your own that depict the topic which you are assigned.  (5 pts each)

2. You must have the article and put in your own terms (teen-speak.)  (5pts)

3. You must have WHY this article is important represented by your poster. (10pts)

4.You must have some reference to human rights history also on your poster BEFORE 1945.  Think about the video we used in class today (10 pts)

Free heads up for looking at the blog! Pop quiz tomorrow (9/21) on UDHR and other topics we have covered so far in the course. Be ready!
