Animal Rights Pupil Book, Readers by Sue Hackman


Animal Rights Pupil Book, Readers by Sue Hackman

The Hodder Reading Project Level 4-5 identifies blocks to progression and takes pupils from National Curriculum Level 4 to Level 5. It comprises the Teacher's Resource, Pupil's Book and 6 Readers. Reader 3, Animal Rights is written by Barbara James. Animal Rights looks at the many moral issues surrounding the relationship between ourselves and the animals which share our planet. By examining worldwide attitudes and beliefs, the book discusses how far we are responsible for protecting animal welfare. Do animals have a right to be treated in a particular way? Does this right extend only to certain species? Are human needs more important than animal rights? The book considers our use of animals for food, science and entertainment. It explores current issues such as cloning, and considers the threat of extinction posed by the destruction of the environment.
