HRE USA’s New Jersey chapter coordinates human rights education activities and communicates with members and organizational partners in our area.
Our work includes providing HRE professional development opportunities for teachers, creating opportunities for our local members to network and share best practices in HRE, and local advocacy on integrating human rights education into New Jersey state policy and standards. We meet periodically throughout the year.
HRE Curriculum Integration Guide
The Human Rights Education Curriculum Integration Guide provides model lessons to help social studies and other educators implement human rights education in their daily practice.
This project was developed by a team of New Jersey educators and is tied specifically to their state’s social studies standards. However, the guide can be used as a model for any educator seeking to integrate human rights into their curriculum.
Each lesson is tied to Common Core curriculum standards and contains suggested modifications for ESL populations and classified students, as well as suggestions regarding how each lesson supports literacy development.
