Teaching Human Dignity

Promoting the Culture of Life through Education

The Teaching Human Dignity series is a one of a kind collection of units, learning sequences, lesson plans, and resources that empowers teachers to incorporate life and human dignity issues into existing curriculum. Designed by Notre Dame faculty members, these resources take seriously the complexity of life and dignity issues in the modern world, and develop a consistent, unified approach that upholds the inviolable worth of every human being.

All resources are available free of charge. If you don't find what you're looking for, check back periodically as we continue to add more resources.
