Gloria T. Alter and I are very pleased to announce publication of The Human Rights Imperative in Teacher Education: Developing Compassion, Understanding and Advocacy (Lanham MD: Rowman and Littlefield, 2022). This edited volume contains contributions from a distinguished set of authors from the USA, Canada, Chile, Nigeria, and the United Kingdom, all leaders in the field of human rights education. The book combines theory and practice to help educators make human rights education (HRE) a central focus of daily educational practice and includes sample HRE units on the rights of global migrants, Indigenous peoples and LGBTQ+ communities.
A poster session on the book's development and content is scheduled for Dec. 2 at the NCSS annual meeting in Philadelphia from 11:30-12:30 pm at the Philadelphia Convention Center-Convention Center Reg Bridge West. A discount flyer is attached to this email and we encourage you to consider adoption of the book for courses in teacher education programs, inclusion in college/university library collections, and purchase by school administrators and classroom teachers.
If you have questions regarding the book, please contact Bill Fernekes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
