This Rwanda, Past and Present lesson plan also includes:
Explore the deep and lasting impact of European colonialism on the African continent through the lens of the Rwandan nation. Class members will take part in an experiential activity as Hutus and Tutsis, analyzing the divisive conflict between the two groups, and then take guided notes on the history of Rwanda and the scramble for Africa.
- Ensure nature of the experiential activity is appropriate for your learners, as some may be sensitive to the concepts of outcasting and favoritism that the activity is trying to convey
- Includes guided notes and readings on scramble for Africa and general Rwandan history
- Engaging activity involves researching and creating an artistic representation of a survivor's story that will be added to a class quilt
