To Lift Men Everywhere To A Higher Standard Of Life


In this unit, students encounter three documents focusing on human rights: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations in 1948; Eleanor Roosevelt’s “On the Adoption of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights”; and Malala Yousafzai’s “Address to the United Nations Youth Assembly,” which was delivered in July 2013. Each document uses rhetoric to further specific claims related to the broad topic of human rights.

Throughout the unit, students continue to practice their writing skills while developing their ability to analyze an author’s arguments. Students delineate arguments by identifying claims and evaluating the quality of evidence and reasoning authors use to support those claims. In addition to reading and writing, students participate in civil and productive conversation.
