Reviewer Comments:

This resource is a lesson plan that guides students through the process of creating a small human rights project. The lesson follows the human rights introduction that is part of the developing and developed nations unit. Students review content on human rights in a series of countries and then create a small travel advisory book that highlights the human rights record of each country. The lesson includes step by step directions for the project and a follow-up homework assignment. While this is an effective way for students to apply the knowledge they have learned about human rights, the project could be expanded to have students conduct more in-depth research on one country or a general human rights topic. It should be noted that the lesson includes some classroom specific references and would need to be adapted by individual teachers.
