This teachers pack is a comprehensive resource to help raise awareness of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. It provides activities, workshop details, discussion notes, games and lots of ideas to raise awareness of the UN Convention in general, and of two key articles, 12 and 28, in particular.
The pack focuses on how young people and children can take greater responsibility and can be enabled to develop the skills required to achieve the aims of the Convention. The activities help to explore key issues such as assertiveness, empathy, consideration and power. The pack can be used either for an intensive three-day course, or for regular lessons in PSHE and Citizenship sessions.
