ACT RFK Human Rights Curriculum Pilot - Feature in Teaching Citizenship Issue 46
Speaking Truth to Power: Human Rights Defenders
In this article, published in the Winter 2017 edition of Teaching Citizenship, Liz Moorse and Lee Jerome report on a pilot project undertaken by ACT on behalf of Robert F. Kennedy Centre for Justice and Human Rights.
ACT recruited a group of teachers in England in 10 different schools to trial the Speak Truth to Power human rights curriculum resources. The aim was to see how these resources would contribute to citizenship education, by developing students' engagement with human rights and to get teacher feedback on how well the resources worked in the context of the curriculum in England.
The results reveal some useful insights into how teachers might approach this area and how powerful, personal human rights stories can inspire student learning and action. Download the article
