UN Kinderrechtskonvention für Schüler | (Fast) alles, was Schülern Recht ist … eine Einführung in das Recht als kreatives Werkzeug

UN Kinderrechtskonvention für Schüler | (Fast) alles, was Schülern Recht ist … eine Einführung in das Recht als kreatives Werkzeug.

I am teaching a class titled “Law as a creative tool” to a group of high school students. The goal is to enable students to navigate the existing body of legal defenses and rights and to articulate the need for legislation where it doesn’t exist but should. Young people have unique abilities. Younger people more often feel a need for just societies, readily feel compassion for others and are absolute experts in creative thinking. The class is an open forum for discussion rather than teacher centered instruction. We use newspapers, new media, daily conflict as well as legal code to understand issues at hand. Participants are drawing and doodling, searching the net – it’s a fantastic work atmosphere. We have our own blog to collect and share lesson content. Here’s a sample of their art work.

I am looking forward to reading your comments!
