Lesson plans and resources: Youth Awards Young Human Rights Songwriter

Through this pack of three Amnesty lesson plans students will learn how artists have used their words and music to make a stand for human rights and fight for change. Using their skills in language and literacy, group presentation and criticaln thought, students will strengthen their knowledge and understanding of the struggle for human rights, and then take creative action by developing their own protest
song.

The activities in this lesson plan can be used to prepare students to enter the Young Human Rights Photographer category of Amnesty International's Youth Awards. The Youth Awards are open to students aged 7-19 and are run by Amnesty International UK in partnership with Times Educational Supplement (TES).
