Students will be introduced to several pressing human rights issues that are occurring in countries in Africa. They will then work with groups to research and create a report on possible ways to improve the human rights situation and present their plan of action to their peers. This lesson is intended to be a follow-up after an introductory lesson has already taken place (i.e. students are familiar with basics like what a human right is and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights).
