Teaching & Learning Toolbox

About, through and for rights

Home > Resources for Rights Respecting Schools > Teaching and Learning Toolbox

Teaching and learning about, through and for rights is a methodology for practically implementing the Award in every aspect of school life.

Real change for children can only happen when a rights respecting ethos is woven into all facets of a school – from strategy and management, through to engagement with the community and the teaching that happens in every classroom.

This toolbox will take you through the following:

About – Teaching the whole school about rights so that the whole school knows about children’s rights and this knowledge is used to improve child well-being and the school, as well as advocate for global justice and sustainable living.

Through – Teaching through rights is concerned with the planning and structures that underpin school life, ensuring that the operational structures of a school are rights respecting.

For –  When we teach for rights we are looking out to the wider community and beyond, becoming active global citizens.
