Module 10

Exposure of the abuse of human rights


Activity 1:

To recognise the role of visual art in the exposure of the abuse of human rights

[lo 2.2, 2.7]


1. What is stereotyping?

2. Write down two forms of prejudice.

3. Mention forms of discrimination you can think of.

4. How were people made aware of discrimination in the past. How are they made aware of it at the present time?

5. Study the two interpretations below and then write in your journal which one influenced you the most and why.

Interpretation 1

  • The mobile units acted quickly and surprised the Jewish communities.
  • Men, women and children were ordered to gather and then marched to the outskirts of their town or city where they were shot and left in unmarked mass graves.

Interpretation 2


Now find pictures and articles in magazines or newspapers to make a poster protesting against the abuse of human rights.


After you have been divided into groups, you can decide which pictures or articles will be the most effective and then:

  • Paste the items that you have chosen as a photo montage (a type of collage where only photos and articles are used and not materials like wool, string or objects with other textures). Paste this onto your A 1 sheet.
  • Then take colour pastels or koki’s and combine the pictures and articles into a unit. This will serve as the background.
  • Think of a slogan petitioning against the abuse of human rights.
  • Cut letters from magazines and paste these over the background of the poster. Remember that the letters must be clearly visible and bold enough to carry your message and slogan to the viewer.

Activity 2:

To classify composition, style and subject in various works of art

[lo 2.4]


Study the illustrations and then answer the set questions.


1. What is the composition of a work of art?

2. Mention as many as possible differences between the two illustrations with regard to composition.


1. How do the above two works of art differ?

2. Describe in your own words what style is.

Subject or Theme

1. In the illustrations A to D, four different subjects are portrayed. Try to identify all four:


  • Your educator will show you a number of copies of works of art. You must classify these works of art according to composition, style and subject. First write down the name of the artist and the work of art on the left.
Name of the artist and work of art Composition Style Subject


Learning Outcome(LOs)
LU 2
REFLECTINGThe learner will be able to reflect critically and creatively on artistic and cultural processes, products and styles in past and present contexts.
Assessment Standards(ASs)
We know this when the learner:
2.2 discusses how the Arts have contributed and can contribute towards social and cultural change (e.g. as a mirror, in documentaries, as suggestions, commentaries, predictions).
2.7 identifies and explains how photography, filmmaking, sculpture and printmaking can document human rights abuses;2.8 comments on composition, style and subject matter in artworks (e.g. landscape, portraits, still-life, public art or resistance art) over time.

hmm well what is the answer
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log
Commplementary angles

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

types of nano material
abeetha Reply
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.
Ramkumar Reply
what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
