Today’s Objective(s): SWBAT

  1. Clearly define human rights
  2. Begin identifying the 30 universal human rights (1-11)

Do Now – 5 minutes

Review your notes in preparation for the quiz.

LESSON – 50 minutes


The first 15 minutes of today’s work will be spent taking a 2 question quiz. This is an independent, silent activity. If 15 minutes isn’t enough time, sorry, you don’t know the material. I’m sure you’ll do great.

Answer Guiding Questions

After the quiz, you’ll have the rest of the period to work with your table groups to answer the guiding questions we’ve been working on to this point. This is an opportunity to slow down a bit and take notice of what we’ve learned. Whenever we’re working through a challenge, we have to assess our learning from time to time to see if we’ve gained enough understanding to complete our challenge. If so, great, we move on to the Act phase. If not, we continue our investigation.

This work is due tomorrow, please use your class time productively .

Closing – 0 minutes

No closing today, just work to finish answering the guiding questions.


Your only homework is to finish answering the GQs. If you did that in class, you have no homework.
