This learning scenario proposes that students learn how to live together in a plural and global society where citizens, aware of their social, political rights and responsibilities, take into account, as the main reference point, the universality of Human Rights to increase cohesion and tolerance by reducing poverty, inequalities and exclusion. The lesson is mainly focused on migrants that come from other countries and leave behind their family, home, belongings, etc. Students will learn to reflect upon the importance of human rights education as a vehicle to promote social responsibility, dialogue, tolerance and values to encourage peace in the world. They will also develop oral and written communication skills in English, using the appropriate connectors and structures.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
