Stand Up for Children’s Rights

A teacher's guide for exploration and action with 11-16 year olds.

01 January 2009

Stand up for children’s rights is for teachers of students aged 11-16. It can be used in politics, civics, social studies, citizenship, religious education, or any other subject in which children’s rights are taught: it can also be used by youth leaders and other facilitators working with children in this age group.

This resource also includes Background Briefings and UNICEF Bright Ideas. The Background Briefings aim to provide teachers with information, explanations and guidance to support students in exploring children’s rights. UNICEF Bright Ideas are short overviews of projects undertaken by UNICEF national committees, providing real-life examples for inspiration.

This educational tool was developed by Kate Brown, educational consultant, and national committee steering group members, including: Rania Makri, Hellenic National Committee for UNICEF; Maja Pipan,Slovenia National Committee for UNICEF; Barbara Lambourn, New Zealand National Committee for UNICEF;Lisa Wolff, Canadian National Committee for UNICEF; Rina Yitzhaki, Israeli National Committee for UNICEF.
