Subject: human rights in the curriculum
Today's forum regarding teaching about human rights in the school curriculum was fantastic! It made me realize how much teaching about human rights fits into my Modern World History class. Although issues related to human rights are virtually silent in the standards, there is a diversity of ways it can be integrated or even serve as a foundation for certain units. I was especially fascinated by the origin of human rights law arising from the ashes of WWII and the Holocaust - great for the classroom.

Also, Doctors Without Borders and Amnesty International have some great curriculum online. Check it out.
