The lessons introduce the concept of rights versus wants through examination of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Students also examine case studies and identify which rights are enjoyed or denied in particular situations.
In groups students problem solve possible solutions for situations where rights are denied. In Canada, Edwards, Wesche, Krashen, Clement, and Kruidenier, carried out some of the first research examining how content-based instruction could enhance acquisition of English as a foreign language at the university level.
The late 's and early 's then saw content-based instruction influencing the field of EFL instruction in Japan.
Cates stated that global education was bringing a new perspective to the language classroom, school curricula, and the world of applied linguistics.
Snow discussed how a content-based approach could boost student motivation while providing students an opportunity to use language in a meaningful way. This trend has continued to grow with teachers and students expecting language instruction to include more than the basics of language content, use and form, Hullah, Content-based instruction gives students a chance to develop new skills and also use the skills they already have to discuss, evaluate and problem solve issues of world concern.
Topics can also be chosen by the teacher to examine current issues, events, and concerns or reflect the experiences of the teacher. Students at Japanese universities and colleges generally enjoy the rights outlined in that declaration.
These students may be unaware of situations in Japan where people are denied their basic human rights, such as Japan's refugee policy and racial discrimination as well as situations in other parts of the world where basic human rights such as the right to a nationality, primary education and freedom from torture are denied.
This paper describes a two-part series of lessons designed to get students to compare their own knowledge about human rights with the declaration and to examine situations where people are denied their human rights. Lesson 1 The first lesson, 90 minutes duration, has the following learning outcomes: To introduce students to the concept that peoples' basic needs are considered human rights.
Students will be able to list some of the universal human rights and name the main rights they enjoy.
|Teachers as Managers||Currently in the United States about million people are impacted by disabilities to some extent either themselves or through association. This number amounts to approximately half the current US population.|
|Preparing Teachers for the Inclusion Classroom||This makes a great deal of sense since education is primarily concerned with human learning.|
|It is particularly concerned with the potential contributions of windows and daylight to improved performance by office workers. Two different studies were conducted at the same organization, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.|
|Uses of Job Analysis in Human Resource Management (HRM)||Job analysis collects and analyses the information related to jobs and various aspects of jobs.|
Materials Each student receives a copy of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the end of the first lesson. Plain language formats can be found at www. More information on the Declaration is available at www.
A set of ten pictures reflecting rights and a matching set of ten cards with an explanation of the right written in English needs to be prepared. The rights to be used can be found in Appendix 1. Pictures cut out from newspapers or magazines depicting real situations may be more meaningful to the students then hand-drawn pictures.
There should be enough cards prepared so that each student receives either a picture card or a description card. Depending on the class size or level of the students the teacher can choose to use a different number or different selection of rights, if this is done the teacher will also need to amend the worksheet found in Appendix 1.
Published material that can be used for this activity can also be found at www.
The characteristics are then written on the board. Students are then asked to list the needs all people have and contrast them with the wants that some people have, e. The teacher then explains that the needs we all have are really rights we are entitled to.
The teacher can go on to explain that even though people are entitled to these rights many people are denied them. The teacher may like to give some examples from recent newspapers or explain to the class that they are going to examine this area in more detail in the following lesson.
The teacher then gives a brief history about the United Nations and the adoption of the charter. For example the teacher could explain that during WWII, many people were denied their basic rights and so in the United Nations was formed and in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted.
The declaration was developed as a standard for all people to accept and follow.Surprisingly, 9th graders (from biology classrooms) sometimes outperform much older children (from chemistry, physics, or environmental sciences classrooms), suggesting that innovative engineering design skills can .
