Rights and Responsibilities: Grades 9-12

Collector: Ann V.

What responsibilities do individuals have to uphold human rights? That is the essential question for the five lessons and activities in the Rights and Responsibilities module designed for high school civics and U.S. history classes. Lessons focus on the guaranteed rights in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the difficulty the U.S. has had trying to live up to these ideals, and how activists have responded to rights violations. To conclude, individuals consider their responsibility to uphold the right of others.
