MAGENDZO-KOLSTREIN, Abraham  and  TOLEDO-JOFRE, María Isabel. Human Rights Education: A Pedagogical and Didactic (Teaching) Strategy Focused in a controversial perspective. Educare [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.3, pp.410-425. ISSN 1409-4258.

The purpose of this article, which can be envision as an essay, is to present a pedagogical-didactic strategy for human rights education focusing on the controversy. Advancements and setbacks faced by human rights education in Latin America are exposed in order to support this strategy. Therefore, it indicates that education has denied the conflict and explains the need for its inclusion under the idea of 'controversial issue. Additionally, the existence of conflicts in the interpretation, violation and/or respect for human rights is pointed out. The principal tensions that cross human rights are displayed. Based on the above, the need to support the existence of a human rights education focusing on the conflict and central components of its teaching strategy are described, and it ends by referring to its didactic approach and the role which should be assumed by faculty when teaching human rights including the conflict.

Keywords : rights education; critical pedagogy; controversial issues.
