"Human Rights Education: The Last, Best Hope for Social Studies"
Sponsored by the Human Rights Education Community
How do we unleash students’ passion for building a humane, just, and equitable world and transform our classrooms and schools into vibrant, inclusive spaces? How do we support our communities as they deepen their democratic commitments? Explore the principles and practices of human rights as a paradigm for making Social Studies relevant in our current moment of crisis and recurring community conflict. This session introduces draft guidelines for aligning human rights education with the C3 Framework and NCSS Standards for Preparation of Social Studies Teachers.
