Human Rights Project
What was daily life like for a Jewish teenager in 1930s
Germany? How does a child cope with working conditions in a sweatshop? What is
it like to be separated from your family as you try to escape the horrors of
tribal warfare or “ethnic cleansing”? Students in Ms. Tammy Froese’s Grade 9
English Language Arts classes challenged themselves to experience life in
difficult times from a teen’s perspective through research for a multi-genre
Human Rights Project. Aided by Teacher-Librarian Mrs. Alice Osborne, the
students browsed through book selections in a variety to genres, searched the
EBSCOhost databases, and consulted authentic online research sources to immerse
themselves in the lives of their “person” and create works based on their inquiries:
poems, diaries, letters, and personal
reflections of the experience. The results were phenomenal, a distinctive blending
of history and literature.
