Though the standards derive from a school district's New English Language Arts (ELA) scope and sequence, at least two content areas or disciplines (English and Social Studies) are addressed in this unit of study on Human Rights, and there is ample room for the arts. In particular, the major theoretical framework supporting the unit is Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences theory in service of deep disciplinary understanding. Thus, the unit crosses all eight intelligences and allows room for many other disciplines. It is presented in an easy-to-consult chart style (a curriculum map), with content, skills, assessment, and standards featured in large, bold type. (NKA)
