“Human Rights for Young Listeners” and the “Summer Reading Program” are made possible with support from Together Treasure Valley.
The Summer Reading Program is designed to introduce children to core concepts in human rights (diversity, inclusion, dignity, respect, kindness, empathy, etc.) through stories, art, movement activities, journal drawing and writing, and language stimulation. Gaining an understanding of the vocabulary word “upstander,” participants practice being upstanders through active engagement in the stories read and in the hands-on activities shared.
In compliance with Covid19 safety protocols, the 2020 Summer Reading Program in the Marilyn Shuler Classroom for Human Rights has been cancelled.
