Teacher resources: conflict and peace

Teacher resources: conflict and peace
January 10, 2014 Dave Fullerton
In ideas, resources, social cohesion

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.

“Entirely focused on being useful for a busy teacher who wants to challenge students but has no time to develop lessons like this.”  David Whitcombe, Emanuel School, NSW.

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.

What people are saying

  • “The RwandanStories website is absolutely fantastic and testament to the enormous energy and passion you’ve put into the project. I’m using some of the clips for a Masters course on justice and memory issues at Uni of London and I’ve spread the link far and wide, including to many colleagues in Rwanda. Congrats on this superb piece of work and I’m sure it’ll have major impact in many different contexts.”
