Let’s review from Friday;
Cats in the Cradle by Harry Chaplin
My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talkin’ ‘fore I knew it, and as he grew
He’d say “I’m gonna be like you dad
You know I’m gonna be like you”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home dad?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then son
You know we’ll have a good time then

My son turned ten just the other day
He said, “Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let’s play
Can you teach me to throw”, I said “Not today
I got a lot to do”, he said, “That’s ok”
And he walked away but his smile never dimmed
And said, “I’m gonna be like him, yeah
You know I’m gonna be like him”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then son
You know we’ll have a good time then

Well, he came home from college just the other day
So much like a man I just had to say
“Son, I’m proud of you, can you sit for a while?”
He shook his head and said with a smile
“What I’d really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
See you later, can I have them please?”

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then son
You know we’ll have a good time then

I’ve long since retired, my son’s moved away
I called him up just the other day
I said, “I’d like to see you if you don’t mind”
He said, “I’d love to, Dad, if I can find the time
You see my new job’s a hassle and kids have the flu
But it’s sure nice talking to you, Dad
It’s been sure nice talking to you”

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He’d grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man on the moon
When you comin’ home son?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then son
You know we’ll have a good time then

Social Studies 20:
HUMAN RIGHTS UNIT Learning Targets:
All learning targets from the human rights section will potentially be covered.

Twice this century, people have pledged that the world must never again be allowed to reach a state where human rights can only be protected through war. Protection of human rights requires constant vigilance and renewal. Unless every generation renews its commitment to human rights, the social power of these rights will decline. The consequence of a weakened human rights code gives some groups within society permission to be arbitrary and irresponsible. The cost to society is social division and injustice. This unit is a study of the concept of human rights and its related obligations. Case studies are used to portray the process through which individuals within society collectively affirm a moral vision and from that vision develop a human rights paradigm. A human rights paradigm is a pattern of human rights and relation obligations which are used as criteria for determining acceptable human relationships. As the moral vision on which a human rights paradigm is based changes over time, the paradigm will also change with significant consequences for the human relationships governed by that paradigm. At the beginning of the unit, you will study cases where the moral vision and its related human rights paradigm has changed; the issue of slavery in society; the Holocaust, the revolutions of Gandhi and Lenin; the Civil Rights Movement led by Martin Luther King.

BELL WORK: Respond to this in a blog post or on the Social Studies 20 page of your WordPress.
