The Figth for Rights (4º ESO)


    The Fight for Rights 
es una unidad nueva para el Curriculum Integrado de 4º ESO, que vertebra, en coordinación con la asignatura de ética bilingüe, el curriculum de Historia en L2, sustituyendo a la programación anterior, organizada en torno al intercambio con Londres.

    Al no planterarse como una actividad interdisciplinar concreta, sino como diseño global de programación para el Curriculum Integrado, no hemos diseñado un único cuaderno de trabajo/workbook específico, sino una serie de tareas integradas en bloques temáticos con sus respectivos recursos didácticos. Todo ello puedes consultarlo en la Programación de Historia 4º ESO Bilingüe 2013/14.
    Se ha diseñado como una unidad que se desarrolla en tres bloques, cada uno de los cuales se trabajará en cada trimestre, con la siguiente estructura y contenidos:





- Analizamos el fenómeno del comercio Triangular (Edad Moderna), la esclavitud como fenómeno económico
  - La aprición del concepto de Derecho Natural y las primeras Cartas de Derechos (Ilustración)
  - El movimiento abolicionista: orígenes y evolución hasta lograr la abolición legal de la esclavitud (Liberalismo)




  - Nos centramos en la lucha de las mujeres por sus derechos políticos y civiles, el movimiewnto Sufragista (Los cambios sociales en el s.XIX - Evolución política de las potencias Europeas)
  - Analizamos el vínculo entre sufragistas y movimientos por la igualdad de derechos de las población afroamericana (Guerra de Secesión USA - Crisis 1929)
- La idea de superioridad étnico-cultural en el imperialismo europeo del s. XIX (Imperialismo y colonialismo)




- La desaparición total del estado de drecho y del derecho natural. Racismo y genocidio (El totalitarismo fascista - II GM)

   Billie Holiday Strange Fruit (1939)

        Strange Fruit -- Lyrics

        "Strange Fruit" is a poem written by Abel Meeropol, a white, Jewish high school teacher from the Bronx.  In the poem, Meeropol expressed his horror at lynching's. He had seen Lawrence Beitler's photograph of the 1930 lynching of Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith in Marion, Indiana. He published the poem under the title "Bitter Fruit" in 1937.
        Though Meeropol had often asked others (notably Earl Robinson) to set his poems to music, he set "Strange Fruit" to music himself and the piece gained a certain success as a protest song in and around New York. Barney Josephson of Cafe Society Nightclub in New York heard the song performed by Meeropol, his wife, & black vocalist Laura Duncan & introduced it to Billie Holiday whom asked her label Columbia to record the song.
        Fearing a negative reaction due to the songs lyrics, they refused to record the song. She then asked friend Milt Gabler of Commodore Records & sang a cappella version to Gabler whom wept afterwards. Columbia gave Holiday a one-session release from her contract to record with Commodore.
        Because of the songs impact, Holiday was told to close all her shows with it. As the song was about to begin, waiters stopped serving, lights were turned off & a spotlight was focused on Holiday whom had her eyes closed, as if she were praying.

        (1999) Time magazine called it the song of the century.
        (2002) The Library of Congress honored the song as one of 50 recordings chosen that year to be added to the National Recording Registry.


        Kunta Kinte (1750-1822; also known as "Toby Waller") was an african–born American slave. Kinte was born circa 1750 in the Mandinka village of Juffure, The Gambia.
      The outline of his life story was the basis for the novel Roots: The Saga of an American Family by American author Alex Haley, and the television miniseries Roots (ABC, 1977), based on the book. Haley described his book as faction: a mixture of fact and fiction.
       One day in 1767, four men surrounded him and took him captive. Kunta awoke to find himself blindfolded, gagged, bound, and a prisoner of white men. He and others were put on the slave ship the Lord Ligonier for a three-month Middle Passage voyage to North America.
        Kunta survived the trip to Maryland and was sold to a Virginia plantation owner, who renamed him Toby. He rejected the name imposed by his owners and refused to speak to others.
        After being recaptured during the last of his four escape attempts, the slave catchers gave him a choice: he would be castrated or have his right foot cut off. He chose to have his foot cut off, and the men cut off the front half of his right foot. As the years passed, Kunta resigned himself to his fate and also become more open and sociable with his fellow slaves, while never forgetting who he was or where he came from.


"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights." Universal Declaration of Human Rights.


        You may think that women have always had the right to vote, but this is far from the truth.
        Up until the 1900s, most democracies throughout history only allowed men to vote. This includes the democracies of Ancient Greece, the Roman Republic, and early democracies in Europe and the United States.

        In the United States women were not allowed to vote until the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920.
That's less than 100 years ago.

        In some countries the date was much later, such as in Kuwait where women weren't given the right to vote until 2005. In other countries the date was earlier, as in New Zealand which pioneered women's suffrage in 1893.

Womens Rights Current Global Issues:Throughout history, women all over the world have faced, and largely taken: oppression, abuse, violence, and gender-based discrimination.
     Many may believe that because women  can vote, and have been granted many of the same rights as men, rights are no longer an issue. Yet within modern western civilization, there are still prevalent issues that women are faced with daily. They have become a commodity, and a symbol of weakness. Women do not receive equal treatment to men, even within modern western society. This needs to stop.
