Human Rights

What basic rights are guaranteed to all Americans? Do citizens, legal aliens, illegal aliens, and minors all have the same rights? Should individuals all over the world enjoy the same rights? Class members read the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as part of a unit study of the responsibilities individuals have to uphold human rights. This first lesson plan in the series, focusing on the rights that all people are guaranteed, ends with the class drafting a Teenage Bill of Rights.
