In coordination with the 2015 Raymond and Beverly Sackler Distinguished Lecture featuring Kerry Kennedy, the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut is partnering with Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights to introduce teachers to the Speak Truth To Power (STTP) Human Rights Curriculum.

This two-day workshop will provide participants with training in STTP lessons, resources, and projects, along with guidance in integrating the curriculum into district and school-level standards.

*Teachers unable to participate in both days may attend the April 10 session only.  Participants completing both days are certified as STTP Lead Teachers.


Workshop includes:

  • Review of human rights education concepts and standards
  • Introduction to the Defenders Curriculum and STTP online resources
  • In-depth training in 3-4 selected Defender Lessons.
  • Work in small groups to develop course-specific lesson-plans for use in their own classrooms.

 

Workshop is free of charge and open to enrollment by pre-service and in-service teachers of all grades and content areas.

Workshop examples and tools will be most appropriate to Language Arts and Social Studies teachers at the middle and high school level.
