We are really excited to present this fantastic teaching resource  developed by Media Awareness Network with support from the Pearson Centre for the Study of Childhood and Children’s Rights, Canadian Teachers’ Federation and UNICEF Canada.

In this lesson grade nine and ten students will discuss the concept of human rights and then learn how these ideas led to the drafting of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. They then consider five particular Articles of the Convention and, in groups, discuss how these relate to their media use. Students debate which Articles are most important to their media experiences and defend their choices to the class.
