EDC/HRE (Volume V): Exploring Children's Rights - Nine short projects
for primary level (30/04/2007)

Children should know what rights they have, but they should also learn
how to appreciate and to use them. To achieve this, schools must allow
for a wide range of learning experiences in children's rights education.
Children understand and appreciate their rights by using them, both in
school and in everyday life. To encourage children to do so, the
challenge for the teacher is to create a setting that is governed by the
spirit of democracy and human rights. This manual has been designed for
teachers who are looking for tools to teach children's rights to
students at primary schools. The features of this manual include: - Nine
small projects of four lessons each, for students in their first nine
years of school. - Detailed lesson instructions that can be followed by
beginners or used in teacher training. - A lesson plan including the key
questions and key tasks in each at the beginning of each project
description. - An approach of task-based learning, focusing on problem
solving and learning by example, which supports the pupils in conceptual
learning, skills training and the development of values and attitudes. -
Following the key principles of Education for Democratic Citizenship
(EDC), methods and setting of open and co-operative learning support the
message of content and principles in children's rights learning.
(Learning through, about and for children's rights.) - A tool to support
reflection and discussion in class (see below). - A section on materials
for teaching and further studies in children's rights.
