KEY QUESTIONS
What was the genocide like for one Rwandan, Alisa? When we see stories like this, how do we feel? Is there a way to make sense of difficult stories like this?

This lesson is based on two of the films on the RwandanStories website: ‘Ntarama church massacre’ and ‘In the marshes’. They are confronting, but can fuel students’ interest in exploring the causes of, and solutions to, such conflicts.
They mirror the genocide stories of tens of thousands of Rwandans and are a grim but important starting point for understanding Rwanda’s ambitious efforts at providing justice, and rebuilding a country.

AIMS AND PURPOSE
To inform students about one person’s genocide story.
To provide a powerful context for subsequent stories of recovery and justice.
To help students generate questions which will guide their study of the genocide and recovery

WHAT DO I GET?
There are three PDFs included with this lesson:-
A four-page lesson plan covering the key questions, aims, resources needed and a detailed outline of the suggested method and activities.
A set of handouts ready for printing.
A set of presentation slides for class discussion.

NOTE: As the lesson is based around two of the films on the website, you’ll need internet access.
