For: Teachers, Administrators, Curriculum Developers of Bay Area High Schools, Leaders of Community Based Non-Profit Organizations, University Faculty and Graduate Students

With successful work in Bay Area high schools, this institute presents unique curriculum that excites students about learning, being engaged in actions and behaviors that further positive interactions with their peers, teachers and extended communities, and taking action to promote equity, justice and human dignity for all people. Teachers focused on academic subjects, including social studies, history and language arts will experience how to integrate creative arts elements – spoken word, visual arts, dance/movement, performing arts, digital arts, and music – into their teaching of the UDHR to help students grasp and apply otherwise abstract concepts, and enthusiastically utilize critical thinking, creative expression and writing skills.

Leaders working with youth to address social justice issues will acquire UDHR content and curriculum that can enhance their programs.

We hope you can attend!
