We will cover various topics in human rights including the right to life, liberty, happiness, property, and protection against discrimination. I will share some examples with the students then ask them how they can apply the skills they learned to the real world.

My goal is that the students will gain a brief understanding of human rights through something fun and exciting like Marvel. I hope this inspires them to learn more about human rights and become advocates for people all over the world.
Human rights were the center of my college education. I studied under some of the most recognized professors in the world in the field of human rights at the University of California Davis. I have a firm understanding of the concepts and am very excited to teach them to the class in a simple and fun way. I am a historian that understands the need to provide the most well-informed and balanced analysis of historical events. Furthermore, I have experience teaching human rights to various levels of learners, from grade school to college-level students. Additionally, I have studied various critical pedagogical techniques that allow me to have a fair classroom that welcomes all viewpoints and voices.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be predominantly looking at primary sources like the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other important documents ratified by the United Nations regarding human rights. All other sources will be scholarly and peer-reviewed journals, newspapers, first-hand accounts, and oral history. These sources will allow us to use historical research as a foundation for our learning. We will be comparing these sources with various examples from Marvel films.
