Education is the foundation and catalyst for changing the state of human rights in the world, but educators need effective materials and tools they can use to easily incorporate human rights in their curriculum. Recognizing this, United for Human Rights has the answer: the United for Human Rights Online Education Website.

Free to educators, it gives teachers and educators everywhere a resource to help bring the concepts of human rights to life and make them a reality in the hearts, minds and actions of those who study the subject right online.

Knowledge of the problem is the first step in moving people into action to remedy it and this website has been designed to provide that knowledge to students in any setting, whether teaching online or offline.

Included herein:

  • An Educator's Guide
  • The Story of Human Rights, a powerful film which defines human rights for anyone
  • Full set of teacher's guides and lesson plans to deliver the curriculum
  • Discussion questions
  • Assingments that require application of theory
  • Glossary of terms, references to print and online resources

The Online Education system is designed for secondary and post-secondary classrooms and adult education classes in community settings. It may be used as a full course or as a supplemental resource in another curriculum.

The Online Education Website is built to facilitate several learning environments, providing tools for both the teacher and the student.

        <li>Teachers can use the site to deliver the curriculum to students right in the classroom</li>
        <li>Tutors and home school teachers can manage several students at once, and can customize the curriculum for the needs of specific students in a remote or one-on-one scenario</li>

        The complete lesson plan is built into the Online Education website, providing all of the tools of the full curriculum.

        The Teachers' Guide provides one with details on each step of the curriculum, including additional teacher-only instructions and information on how to evaluate student performance.

         Lessons tailored for the students are provided in the site, allowing the student to follow along on his own computer (if available); and easily accessible to the teacher for handy reference.

    The Notice Board section gives teachers the facility to post exemplary student answers on the board for the class to view, as well as the ability to make teacher announcements.

    A Student Roster is provided to manage your students, review progress and assign grades for each student.

    Notifications and a messaging system provide the ability to send and receive messages to individual students.

    Also included is a student grading system, providing the ability to grade each step and write notes for each.

    All United for Human Rights educational videos, booklets and materials are available for download from the app, as well as in-line with the lessons themselves, ready for immediate viewing.
