"You mean something like the Holocaust has happened again?" Students are shocked to learn about the conflict in Sudan and often feel inspired to help makes changes in the world. Use this lesson to present a basic background on the genocide and war affecting modern Africa.
The 5-E based lesson begins with an engaging "First World Problems" activity to remind students how fortunate they are to live in the USA. Then, a free writing exercise challenges them to identify prejudices in their own mindsets. Fill-in style notes accompany the PowerPoint so you can easily introduce the history of the Sudanese conflict. A link will direct you to an excellent 15 minute human interest story by CBS news. A graphic organizer accompanies the video. Conclude the lesson with a summary activity that challenges your class to create solutions to this real-world problem.
