Grade 10 ELA Module 2, Unit 3

Students in class

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.
