Close Reading: Unpacking Specific Articles of the UDHR

This Close Reading: Unpacking Specific Articles of the UDHR lesson plan also includes:

Lesson 6 of this extensive unit finally has your class begin to work their way through specific articles from the text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Before examining the rights actually detailed in the document, have your class guess what rights might be included with a "give one, get one" activity. Individuals brainstorm a list of rights they imagine might be in the UDHR, and then walk around, sharing and recording the ideas of their classmates. Afterward, delve into Article 2 with your class, modeling close reading strategies and completing corresponding sections of the note-catcher. Individuals will do Article 3 independently. Note: See additional materials for an index of the unit's lessons.
