Topics (Recommended for Teachers!)
Here, we will provide you with several topics, one of
which you can base an essay on. The essay does not need
to be in typical "essay format" (introduction,
3 body paragraphs, and a conclusion), but should still
be able to convey your arguments fairly effectively. Think
of it as more formal than the message board, but less
than what your teachers might expect (Note to teachers:
formal essays are more than welcome!)
When completed, send your essay in the body of an email
or copy/paste your essay and submit it through the form.
We reserve the right to edit grammar and spelling, but
we can guarantee that the main idea of your essay will
be intact. Inappropriate essays will not be posted on
the website, and you will be sent an email informing you
of this. If your essay is posted, you will receive proper
credit for it.
If you use or cite sources, we require that you include
a proper bibliography.
1. Of all the articles in the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights, which right is the most important (either
to you, or to society), and why?
2. With the dawning of the 21st century, human rights
are becoming very pertinent in the world. Which crisis
most needs rectifying?
3. Of all the human rights pioneers, who made the
most significant contributions? Your pioneer can be either
one listed on our website, or one that we have not mentioned.
