|Structure of EHL|
The Exploring Humanitarian Law (EHL) resource pack contains five core modules. Each module has a central theme and consists of a number of explorations, or lessons. Every exploration presents a lesson plan, which sets out the time needed for it, various activities for students, the different resources that are available, and ways in which students' learning may be assessed. One exploration takes between one and three classroom sessions, each 45-60 minutes in duration. In total, the 22 explorations offer a maximum of 36 hours of active learning, that can be adapted according to the time at disposal and the initial knowledge of the students.
The central idea of EHL is to explore concepts related to the experience of armed conflict. Some of these concepts are common to all five modules, while others are specific to certain explorations. In order to assist teachers and students, every exploration comes with its own guiding questions. For each exploration, you can consult the matrix (summary of the guiding questions, concepts, objectives and key ideas addressed), download the PDF or access the "Exploration" page.
In addition to these five modules, there is an introductory exploration (Images and perceptions) and a closing exploration (Where do we go from here?).
The Explorations section of the EHL Virtual Campus contains all the explorations. All teaching materials can be downloaded, either individually by exploration or as entire modules. This section also offers guidelines for inserting EHL into different subject areas.
