The Australian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC) has developed a range of human rights education resources which are available free of charge via our Information for Teachers Website @ http://www.humanrights.gov.au/info_for_teachers/index.html The latest resources released by HREOC include the Bringing them home Education Module, which is accessible via the HREOC website @ http://www.humanrights.gov.au/bth/index.htm In particular, the Bringing them home Education module will help students explore: * the history, laws and practices of forcible separation of Indigenous children from their families * the effects of separation on individuals, families and communities * the recommendations aimed at healing the pain caused by separation * responses to the Bringing them home report since it was first published. The resource also includes a number of real-life stories by those affected by forcible separation, providing a personal perspective into the effects of these past policies and the need for healing. Activities and teaching resources for Juniors (Yrs 6-8) and Seniors (Yrs 9-11) will help teachers and students make the most of the material. Current teaching strategies have been used to structure these activities, with a major focus on literacy skills, including critical literacy, code breaking and comprehension skills, through reading and responding to a variety of texts. A variety of whole-class, group, paired and individual projects are included, with students engaged through 'webcrawl' activities, design projects, creative writing activities, local history projects, role-playing activities and youth roundtable exercises, as examples of this contemporary scaffolded approach to learning. ======== Global Human Rights Education listserv ======== Send mail intended for the list to <email@example.com>.
