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.

Let’s talk:
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil if for the good men to do nothing.” by Edward Burke

We will discuss. Write down as many human rights, that are recognized by the U.N., as you can. How many can you get?

How many human rights do you think exist? We will discuss.

As a class; (not before)
We will take a look at the Universal Declaration of Human Rights together:

What does moral entitlement mean?
What does ‘universal’ mean when we are talking about human rights?

The Declaration of Human Rights
