A Short Twenty Years: Meeting the Challenges Facing Teachers Who Bring Rwanda into the Classroom
Gudgel, Mark
Teaching History, n153 p46-54 Dec 2013
As the twentieth anniversary of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda approaches, Mark Gudgel argues that we should face the challenges posed by teaching about Rwanda. Drawing on his experience as a history teacher in the US, his experience researching and supporting others' classrooms in the US and UK, his training in Holocaust education and his knowledge and experience of Rwanda, Gudgel identifies some of the most common challenges facing teachers. He offers practical advice, some principles for continued development of suitable approaches and his personal reflections on the importance of bringing Rwanda's history into the classroom.
