Summary Help for KS3 Citizenship (Human Rights) July 2008

Right Here, Right Now.

This resource aims to facilitate effective teaching and learning of human rights, including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, within Key Stage 3 citizenship. Whilst the resource is rooted in the key concept of rights and responsibilities, human rights also underpin the other key concepts of the new citizenship curriculum: democracy, justice, identities and diversity. Produced as a partnership between the Ministry of Justice and the British Institute of Human Rights (and supported by the DCSF and Amnesty International), it is intended to help teachers bring human rights to life, enabling them to explore with students concrete issues such as poverty and discrimination and to facilitate challenging debates.
