Rights Violated


Work with your group to determine which of the rights in the document have been violated for characters in the play. Write your answers to the following questions.

  • Who in The Tempest violates those rights?
  • Where in the play are the rights violated? (Which act, scene, and line?)

Open Notebook

In the next lesson, you will share your answers with the whole class.

Choose one character whose rights have been violated according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Work with your group to produce prosecution evidence against the violator of human rights. During Lesson 3, you will have an opportunity to present this evidence. You will need to cite act, scene, and line numbers.
