For several years we’ve been providing teachers with resources to use within the mainstream school curriculum.
Through film, photography and journalism, the personal encounters with survivors and perpetrators of the genocide challenge students to think through the ideas and actions which either lead to conflict or build peace. They also hold out the possibilities for recovery, unity and hope.
There are currently twenty-two lessons covering global education, History, Psychology, English, Legal Studies, Social and Values education, Geography and Social Sustainability. 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.
They’re available as individual downloads or as a complete lesson pack. The full set of lessons, plus all the films (in 1280×720 HD) is also available on USB.Browse the resources
