Secondary Citizenship - The Human Rights Experience

Description

Bryn Hafren Comprehensive School for Girls in South Wales has enriched lessons by introducing human rights issues across the curriculum.

English and music teacher Naomi Howells finds that bringing human rights issues into lessons can inspire pupils. She has organised a human rights week and devised lesson plans across all areas of the curriculum.

It's a whole school approach supported by the headteacher, who is careful to encourage pupils to debate, rather than simply accept what they hear.

The school's thriving Amnesty International group demonstrates against Gauntanamo Bay in the town centre, where the pupils are surprised to discover that some locals disagree with their point of view.
