Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The United Nations developed a Universal Declaration of Human Rights in December 1948. These articles define the rights that every human should have available to them.

Your task:

You will research a humanitarian crisis and create a Tackk informing your audience about the history, evolution, and reality of that humanitarian crisis. You'll consider these main points:

  • What is the crisis? Provide information explaining the crisis to your audience.
  • History - how did this crisis come about? What are some of the causes?
  • Which article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (above) is being misused? In other words, why is this a humanitarian crisis?
  • What is being done to stop this crisis? Who are the major players trying to help?

Your Tackk must have:

  1. At least 4 pieces of multimedia
  2. Information about the 5 Ws (who, what, where, when, why) of your chosen human rights crisis.
  3. A piece using the Universal Declaration of Human Rights analyzing why it is a human rights crisis
  4. At least 5 paragraphs of written text
  5. A reference list at the end of the Tackk
  6. A well-designed visual representation of your information
