summer instituteBay Area high school teachers, administrators, curriculum developers, university faculty members, graduate students and leaders of community groups are invited to apply to our third annual Summer Training Institute!

After two years of successful three-day Summer Training Institutes for teachers, non-profit leaders and graduate students on The World As It Could Be Human Rights Education Program, we are delighted to join with the International and Multicultural Studies Department of the University of San Francisco School of Education in announcing this year’s Institute, to be held July 31-August 2 on the USF campus.

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 Universal Declaration of Human Rights 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.

There is no charge to attend; enrollment is limited to 25 participants.
