Liberty North Leading Innovation – Humanities
Humanities 10 students have been researching human rights violations while exploring the historical, cultural, and societal implications. Through the creation of a multi genre artifact project they have been developing empathy and a deeper understanding of both world history and the impact it has on individuals. Ronnie Lathrop and Kimberly Brownlee have utilized project based learning in combination with cooperative structures to enable their students to dive deeply into content while also refining their research, reading, and writing skills.
Teacher Reflection: The variety of means students used to present their research was outstanding. The kids are becoming masters of historical research and the synthesis of their understanding went beyond our expectations.
Student Reflection: I researched human rights violations all over the world. I found violations where you would not expect them. I liked creating the different artifacts because I got to be creative.
