Personal accounts of revolution

Eyewitness accounts to history are very valuable sources. There is so much value in this account of the Russian Revolutionary Era that I can't recommend it highly enough, it really is a must for students of this period: The Russian Revolution 1917: A Personal Record by N.N. Sukhanov (Edited, abridged and translated by Joel Carmichael, Princeton University Press).

Re: Teaching Human Rights in World History

You may want to consider Inventing Human Rights: A History by Lynn Hunt (W.W. Norton).  I'm not entirely sure, but I believe junior-senior level high school students should have no problem reading this book if properly contextualized. Of course, you would have to decide if Hunt's approach is what you are looking for in this project. Good luck.
