This issue of The Fourth R is devoted to human rights education resources, divided into general and topical sections. We were able to compile these lists thanks to the help of many educators who shared their expertise with us. We urge you to join them and other educators in dialogue, as we work toward sharing a common ethic of human rights education.
Human rights education should take place in a classroom environment that promotes respect, cooperation, and social responsibility. These selections from the related fields of peace, anti-bias, multicultural, and global education, cooperative learning, and teaching for social responsibility will help you build a foundation for teaching human rights. Choose one or two to begin the process of developing your own approach.
We consider this bibliography a beginning and recognize that due to limitations of time and space, it is not exhaustive. Please send us comments on these materials, as well as information on additional resources. Your input could help fulfill our long-term goal of expanding this bibliography into a book-length resource guide.
