Week of September 27, All about the Human Rights Class

Hi everyone,

This first week, you will be learning about the work we did last year in our Human Rights Class as well as the work we will be doing in the coming year.

First please watch the video below, made by First Person American:

What's Your Story? 2012 from First Person American on Vimeo.

Now go to the website for Concern Worldwide (click on the link). Visit the website and find an article or issue of interest to you. Read about it carefully.

Please sign in using a gmail account. If you don't have one, you need to get one. Write your username and password someplace safe.

Now open Google Docs. Create a document called "Reaction to Day 1", and answer the questions below:

  1. How did it feel to watch these films and why?
  2. Who welcomed you when you came to this country? How would you thank them?
  3. What issue did you read about on Concern's website?
  4. How would you like to help this organization?

Now post your answers to the comments section of our blog.

Finally, read two posts from your classmates and write back to them, telling them what you learned from their posts.
