Description:
This activity introduces students to the history of the Genocide against the Tutsi and helps them explore the consequences of the genocide from both a national (macro) level and a personal (micro) level. By actively listening to individual stories, students will reflect on how the consequences impact the ability to realize reconciliation in Rwanda.

Students will also engage with testimony using a built-in tool that enables each to construct a word cloud, a fitting title, and a personal response to reflect on their learning.

***This activity is designed primarily for use in classrooms in Rwanda (Senior 3 to Senior 6).
