March 26, 2014: For the second year, SAMO STF members hosted teachers and administrators for a Human Rights Education (HRE) workshop during SAMOHI University. A dedicated group of educators and STFers discussed ways to incorporate HRE into English, science and foreign language courses. Students provided participants with suggestions and techniques for introducing HRE through specific lesson plans, reading lists, and other materials.

Attendees asked questions and gave recommendations for reaching out to other faculty to expand this effort on campus. A few teachers also requested to continue the discussion with students and develop more individualized tactics for their classes.

Congratulations SAMO STF for a great job educating  this group of teachers about how to include human rights in their classrooms!
