YTT Human-Rights and Gender-Equality Education Programs:
Our programs have been researched, developed and designed to provide tailor-made human-rights and gender-equality content/programs, adapted to the local teacher and pupil communities, within the elementary/high-school setting and age groups. They have been created as interactive independent lessons and/or as suggested programs of study across a range of subject areas and disciplines, including: social-sciences, art, theatre, geography, languages and history. This in turn, promotes fundamental human-rights, gender-equality, the prevention of violence against children, multi-ethnic diversity and women’s/children’s rights. These curricula, presently available in English, French, Italian and Arabic, are instructed through the YTT Teacher’s Workbooks, which currently are available as downloadable textbooks but can easily be transformed into digital/online experiences, were created by experts in the ﬁeld and devised to be used in a bespoke fashion by teachers and educators who have a unique understanding of their classes. This enables human-rights and gender-equality to become a part of millions of young people’s education and lives.
YTT Human-Rights and Gender-Equality Teacher’s Workbooks:
These easily accessible and downloadable Teacher’s Workbooks, under the general title: “Exploring the World Around Us," are both a series’ of lessons and guides to be used by teachers and instructors with their classes. Currently, there are a number of programs available in two time durations: a 2 hour lesson and a 4 hour lesson in a ﬁve day program. All our workbook versions, propose a teacher’s step-by-step manual, learning objectives and strategies along with speciﬁc activities, information and materials.
The YTT Human-Rights and Gender-Equality Education Program, developed and implemented in partnership with our long-term academic collaborator, the Department of Education at Roma Tre University, is currently underway with hundreds of 5th grade children in several elementary schools in Rome.
