It seems as if the first quarter of school has flown by! Your students have been hard at work deepening their knowledge about human rights. Right before fall break, students worked to create a public service announcement on one of the rights outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Students learned about high quality work and the power of an image and paraphrase as they created their posters. These posters will serve as a reminder to students as they explore real human rights stories and challenges to human rights in the novels Esperanza Rising and Any Small Goodness.

Human Rights: Keeping the Promise

Human Rights
    Keeping the         Promise
Students have been hard at work over the past month trying to figure out the answer to the question "What are human rights?" Over the past few days, your child worked with a team to create posters about an article from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Today, we did a gallery walk where the 
students were able to see the posters created by their fellow classmates. Stay tuned as we continue to explore the Universal Declaration of Human Rights!
