    Welcome to the online educator workshop Books of Conscience.  Learning occurs when interest and the need-to-know intertwine.  This course combines comprehensive information on human rights, the spiral of injustice, and the ACTs that encourage becoming an upstander.

    Course objectives: • identify the thirty articles of Universal Declaration of Human Rights and how they evolved • analyze the spiral of injustice • define the terms empathy, bystander and upstander • evaluate the role of an upstander in interrupting the devolution of injustice • focus on the ACTs (Ask, Choose, Teach) that each individual can take to confront biased language and prejudiced behavior • read selected “Book of Conscience” • recognize the value of books in empathizing with others, combating injustice and promoting social activism • identify specific examples relating to each level of the spiral of injustice and to bring to life human rights

    Course requirements: Complete online Modules 1 and 2. Post online reactions to Module 1 and 2 by writing a reflective response on the materials provided in each module.
