Assessment and Discussion

"Without concerned citizen action to uphold them (human rights) close to home; we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world. . ." Eleanor Roosevelt's comment is used to set the stage for the conclusion of a five-lesson unit that asks class members to consider their personal responsibility to uphold the right of others. Individuals are assigned one article from The Declaration of Human Rights, and using the provided graphic organizer, rate how well they think the US is doing addressing this right.  Finally, class members read and craft an essay in response to newspaper article about INS registration to demonstrate their understanding of the concepts in the unit.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
