Citizenshi ACROSS THE CURRICULUM
1 Read article 1 of the Universal 1 Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) below, then discuss the questions (1-2) in small groups.
1 What are human rights? Who are they for? Why are they important?
2 What is The Declaration of Human Rights?
2 a RNE Read the headings. What do you expect to read in each paragraph in the text? Read again and match the heading (A-E). There is one heading that you do not need to use.
A Rights for all!
B Adopting the declaration
C Protecting freedom
D Rights violations
E Human rights history
b Listen and read the text again. Explain the words in boid.
3 Portfolio: Work in groups. Find out about a charity or organisation that protects human rights e.g. UNICEF, UN, Amnesty international and precent it to the class. You could find out: where its offices are, what it does, who it protects, how you can get involved etc.
It's my right
1> Think about how often you drink clean water, eat food, go to school or university, say or write what you think, and practise your religion (or not). These are all basic human rights, or things that you are morally or legally entitled to do or have. They are the same for everyone, regardless of sex, age, race, nationality or social class. They are extremely important, as they are about recognising the value and dignity of all people, everywhere and at all times!
2> Human rights weren't invented recently! Discussion of them dates back to the earliest civilisations. It wasn't until after the cruelties and injustices that took place during the Second World War, however, that it was decided that protection of human rights should be an international concern.
3> On December 10th, 1948, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in New York. It has thirty articles and protects the right to life, work, housing, free thought and many other things. Since 1948, nearly every country in the world has signed one or more agreements designed to protect the rights in the UDHR.
4> Unfortunately, just because the UDHR exists, it does not mean that human rights are never violated! In some countries, for example, children work in unsafe conditions or are denied the right to go to school. In others, people are in prison because of their political views. For this reason, there are many charities and organisations in the world that fight for human rights. Probably the most well known of these is Amnesty International.
Here are some simplified examples of some of the articles ii the Declaration of Human Rights.
1 have the right to
You have the right to:
• belong to a country
• take part in politics
• go to school
• live in freedom and safety
• have a private lite
• have opinions, speak them&share them with other people
• to be treated equally by the law
• follow the religion you want to
Nobody hes the right to:
• treat you as his or her slave
• punish you or put you in
prison without a good reason
• take your things from you
without a good reason
• torture you
• take away your rights
1 What is a 'green citizen'? Read the introduction to find out.
> SI: A green citizen conserves as much water as they can, for example by always turning off the tap when... etc.
2 Are you a green citizen? Do the quiz, then mark each sentence A (=always/very often), B (=sometimes/occasionally) or C (=never/ hardly ever). Explain the words in bold.
We are all citizens of Planet Earth and rely on it for food, air, water and much more, so not only is it our responsibility to care for the environment, it's also in our best interests! So, how much effort are you making to reduce your impact on the environment? Are you a bright green citizen or more of an embarrassing shade of red?
1 I try to conserve water e.g. by taking short showers, not letting taps run, keeping water in the fridge instead of letting the tap run to let it get cold, etc.
2 I walk, ride my bike, rollerblade, carpool1 or use public transport whenever I can.
3 I 'reduce, reuse, recycle' as much as I can!
4 I try to learn about nature by visiting wildlife reserves and/or national parks.
5 I put coffee grounds/fruit and vegetable peels etc on a compost heap.
6 I take part in local environmental projects e.g. litter collection/tree-planting/recycling projects etc.
7 I buy unprocessed, organic and locally-grown food.
8 I check that the products I buy, e.g. cleaning products, electrical equipment, are safe for the environment.
9 I turn off computers/lights/electronic equipment when I'm not using them.
10 I buy from environmentally responsible businesses.
11 I use rechargeable instead of disposable batteries.
12 I refuse plastic bags in the supermarket and use my own cloth bags instead.
13 We use energy-saving light bulbs at home instead of ordinary ones.
14 I buy products in bulk with as little packaging as possible.
15 I am generally interested in environmental issues and try to stay informed.
1 sharing the use of one car

Caught in the'Act
Even if you're looking carefully, you might miss it; it's only a stray strand of hair, after all. But to me, as a forensic scientist, this is what I live for; this is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. This microscopic human trace might be the one vital piece of evidence that leads to the arrest and imprisonment of the criminal, the one who, without realising it, left his calling card behind at the scene of the crime. One single strand of hair contains all the criminal's DNA and, once matched, can lead all the way back to his door.
And that is my job. I'm a forensic scientist - forensic' just means relating to the legal system - and I collect and analyse evidence that is then used to catch a whole range of criminals committing any number of illegal acts. A member of the public might jump to the conclusion that all I work on are murders, but my field of investigation includes burglaries, arson, simple cases of forgery or more advanced Internet offences. Since time began, criminals have always found new ways of breaking the law, but I have complete faith in my subject. It doesn't matter what the crime is, science will get to the bottom of it and as technology continues to improve, the chances of getting away with it become slimmer and slimmer.
Perhaps the most famous forensic scientist of all was Sherlock Holmes. His methods of investigation, popularised in numerous books, films and television series, included close observation, rigorous examination of evidence and logical deduction. This is where I got my inspiration from. Reading the stories and watching the films fascinated me when I was younger and they still do today. I took all available science courses at school and then moved on to criminology at university. After graduating at the top of my class, it was then a small step to the police and I'm now head of the forensic investigation department.
In many ways the job hasn't changed all that much from the fog-filled streets of Holmes' London. The most useful tool for any scientist is still a keen mind, a good eye that connects the apparently unconnected and a skilful reading of the evidence. A crime scene is not that different to a story. It is a narrative with a beginning, in which the criminal enters the house; a middle, when the crime is committed; and a climax, as the criminal leaves the crime scene. My job is to make sure that the ultimate end is the capture of the villain.
Of course, there is a new style of fictionalised forensics on television nowadays that uses the most cutting-edge technology available and suddenly the job is the focus of a huge amount of attention with relevant university courses filling up faster than ever before. But don't be fooled by what you see on television. The job is vastly different from the one seemingly done by the heroes of a weekly TV show. First of all, the forensic scientist isn't the first one at the scene of the crime; we're usually there much later. Also, forensics can be a time- consuming and lengthy procedure. TV takes one hour to solve the crime; we can take weeks, months, even years. DNA analysis takes a long time, no matter how technologically advanced we are. But having said all that, the basic methods we use are the same as our TV counterparts.
Take fingerprinting, for example. A person's fingerprint is unique; the lines and shapes that pattern the fingertips are individual and belong to no-one else. The grease that comes off our skin at all times of the day leaves a patterned mark on everything we touch. We can make a copy of that mark and, hopefully, match it to the recorded fingerprints of known criminals. This is common knowledge and even the most simple-minded crook knows enough to wear a pair of gloves or wipe down everything he touches. But what about the traces that can't be seen, the traces that can't be wiped down?
At every second of every day your body is shedding microscopic pieces of skin; household dust is mostly made up of your dead cells. You are constantly renewing hairs, old ones fall and new ones grow back; the clothes you wear leave behind the smallest signs of where you've been and what you've been doing. This is called DNA fingerprinting and when gathered together, all of these things serve to build up a picture that is more conclusive than any eye-witness statement. Evidence doesn't lie when it faces a jury. Facts don't forget or get confused. Science states the case. And that is inescapable.
