  1.   Human Rights (Case Study: North Korea)
I developed this lesson plan as part of an educational outreach program at an organization called PSCORE (People for Successful Corean Reunification). PSCORE is a non-profit, non-religious, non-partisan NGO based in Seoul & Washington, DC. PSCORE strives for mutual understanding between the two Koreas and aims to provide a platform to discuss topics such as democratization, social issues and human rights. Through this Human Rights Lesson Program, PSCORE hopes to provide students with a better understanding of human rights and to inspire innovative discussion about the state of human rights in the world. PSCORE invites you, teachers, to bring information about human rights and their abuse in North Korea into your classrooms. To achieve this end, I have provided you with detailed lesson plans, Youth for Human Rights International's "Universal Declaration of Human Rights - Abridged for Youth," simple exercises to address human rights abuses in North Korea, a fact sheet about North Korea, and a list of resources providing information about the North Korean government, economy, legal system and human rights record. Teachers should feel free to alter the lesson plans to meet their students’ levels and interests, and should contact PSCORE with any questions through their webpage. Feedback is also very welcome! I hope that you will integrate this lesson into your classroom, joining us in the campaign for human rights!
