Children’s Rights Centre Resources

Drs. Covell and Howe established the Children’s Rights Centre at Cape Breton University, and operated it from July 1996 to July 2013. Among other projects (such as this report on Youth Violence and these many publications), the centre developed several resources for teaching children’s rights to children, including a colouring book and suggested curricula for several grades. The benefits of comprehensive children’s rights education are described in this report.

Some of those resources are available here. Please note, these items are the originals as distributed by the Centre, and have not been reviewed or updated.
