In an effort to promote awareness and education around women’s issues in India and across the globe, we have created a set of lesson plans to be used in classroom settings. The lesson plans include the following topics: conflict, education, human rights and violence, focusing on South East Asia in particular. The topics and approach are aimed at providing a coherent understanding of how other cultures, governments and systems operate, comparing and contrasting them to those found in the United States. In doing so, we hope to engage the minds of students at an early age to make them more aware of these issues in a global context.
The lesson plans are geared towards high school students, and include PowerPoint presentations, assignments and activities, in addition to helpful background reading material for teachers.
Please contact us if you have any questions or comments regarding the materials.
