Hi, In the past several years, as an outgrowth of contacts and collaborations with colleagues in Chile, we at ISTEP have been focusing more and more of our attention on human rights education at the 7th-12 grade levels. We are now in the middle of our 2nd Annual Curriculum Development Contest in Human Rights Education, open to 7th-12th grade teachers throughout Southern California (San Diego, Imperial, Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties) from any and all disciplines. Information and guidelines for the contest can be obtained by going to www.usc.edu/calis and linking to the Human Rights Curriculum Contest (on left). As we intend to enlarge our programming in this area, we are trying to construct a mailing list of 7th-12th grade teachers/educators who have a strong interest in and commitment to human rights education in the classroom. We are well aware of the difficulties of incorporating human rights into the California curriculum under the current regime of state standards and testing, and are exploring opportunities for working collaboratively with secondary educators in the region to find, develop and share successful strategies for doing so. If you would like to be on our mailing list, please reply by e-mail with your: Name: Home Address: School Name: District: Grades/Subjects: And please share the information about the contest with colleagues at your school!
