Living in the European Union brings with it fundamental rights…and responsibilities, too. Isn’t it important that EU citizens receive an education, both formal and informal, which allows them to achieve a balanced awareness of what democracy is, and what is necessary for societies to function democratically?
In this course, we will research and explore the rights of EU citizens and also the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child. We will discover the rights of EU citizens that contribute to democratic life, and the CVC (the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child) that specifically address the rights of children. We will focus on designing and facilitating age-appropriate learning experiences for students, addressing rights and responsibilities issues, like education, child labor, the right to vote, poverty, sharing of resources and space, family, refugees, and child protection.
Participating teachers will leave this course with a planning template and a completed framework for working with their students to learn more about their rights and responsibilities as EU citizens. They will also have created sets of physical and digital flashcards with key vocabulary and images to help illustrate some of the key terminologies of citizenship. Having access to resources including online photography projects, quality children’s literature and animated short videos for children will all contribute to a rich bank of tools that teachers will be able to use with their students and share with their colleagues when they return to their schools.
