This Close Reading: The Introduction to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights lesson plan also includes:
As part of a group of lessons, your class will return to the primary text for this unit, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Key vocabulary as well as close reading strategies continue to be the focus skills; however, this lesson also covers identifying the main idea. For this section of the unit, your class will read, annotate, and take notes on the first five paragraphs of the UDHR. As the expert reader, you will model close reading strategies for paragraph one and guide the class through paragraph two before they complete paragraphs 3-5 independently. As a closing activity, everyone should add to the set of flashcards they started in the previous lesson.
