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.

I was at a crossroads trying to think of a new… interesting… active way to introduce and teach the different types of economic systems. I turned to Lesson Planet and entered “Economic Systems” into the search tab and was inundated with resources and lesson plans and ideas… the kids loved the lesson I modified for them and still ask when we are going to do another lesson like that “Paper Airplane Company” one. Thanks Lesson Planet.
