December 10th, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which we commemorate every year on this same date (follow the link for a complete version of this Declaration in different languages).

In IES Sánchez Lastra we want to join this important celebration and for that reason we have organized different class activities around the topic of Human Rights, to basically encourage reflection and awareness of our world’s reality and, in a way, contribute to make our society a better and fairer one.

Just to give you an idea of things going on in our classes, here’s a brief summary of activities:

- Selection of certain articles from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Translation of their main ideas into English and French. Design of posters with these translations and some reflections on the articles, class discussions,…

-Videos to watch, reflect and arise class discussion.

-Identifying human rights in songs and debating on how music can also be used to condemn unfair situations. Designing posters and presenting them in front of the class.  

Please, don’t forget to share your impressions and points of view. Leave a comment and tell us how you have liked what we’ve been working on. THANKS EVERYBODY!!
