Introductory remarks

The connection to human rights is in regards to the development of children’s rights in general. School students learn about their own rights through the understanding of how these rights were evolved during the time. Facilitator should keep in mind that school students should first of all reflect upon their personal rights in contemporary times.

LM is designed to be delivered 4 hours (which is divided to three 1 hour and 20 minutes lessons).

Skills:

1) Research and analysis for the particular sources from the personal chronicles and from museums archives

2) Illustrate an ability to use critical thinking in learning History

It is important not just to learn facts about human rights in general, but also to try to build up knowledge using their own experience with sources and materials.

Content:

Even though nowadays the issue of children’s rights are quite developed there are still some cases in the world then children’s rights are neglected and violated, so everyone should appreciate it.

Participants search for the information about the rights of the same age group as they are.

Methods:

The chosen methods of implementation will help school students to put their own effort in understanding the topic and also this will teach them about sources analysis. School students will work both individually and as a part of a group as well as in the classes and at the museums’ exhibitions devoted to the Soviet Union history. 

First of all, students should be given home task for searching required materials in advance, then one lesson will be devoted for analyzing and sharing gathered materials, and then students will have chance to search for extra materials at the museums’ exhibitions. Time should be well enough as the topic is really specific and narrow, so that three lessons will be devoted only for this particular topic.

Some students could not have the access to the materials regarding the task of the LM, so they should share them.
