Best of RwandanStories (download)


This set contains the highlights of the RwandanStories curriculum: eight key lessons with ten matching films.
It also includes two new sets of overhead slides to ‘top and tail’ the unit: an introduction to the physical and human geography of Rwanda and a ‘wrap-up’ look at Rwanda in the 21st century – technology, education, health and culture. It also gives students a “what are they doing now?” update on some of the key characters in the films.

As usual, all lessons come with a detailed lesson plan and most include beautifully formatted sets of presentation slides and handout sheets ready for printing or photocopying.
