Ask the class what they understand by a ‘right’. Get them to think firstly about the sort of rights they have in school, for example being treated fairly by teachers, being taught well, or not being beaten. What rights do they not have? (To behave however they like in class, etc.)
Move on to the idea of human rights. What rights does the class think that everyone in the world should have?
Human rights are the rights that every person has, simply because he or she is a human being. All of us were born with these rights, no matter what our race, nationality or gender, and respecting the rights of others helps to make the world a fairer place. In 1948, the United Nations drew up the Declaration of Human Rights. This document says that human rights are universal, meaning that they are recognized throughout the world.
