07 Nov New York Times: Multi-media lesson plan to teach Human Rights
The New York Times has prepared a multi-media lesson plan to teach Human Rights by focusing on the Rohingya refugee crisis in Myanmar.
“In this lesson, students will first learn about the crisis unfolding in Myanmar using Times reporting, videos, podcasts and photography. Then, we suggest a variety of activities for going deeper, such as tackling universal questions about national identity and minority rights, considering the responsibility of the world community, and going inside the squalid refugee camps sprawling across the border in Bangladesh. And, we suggest ways students can take action and have their voices heard.”
