Teacher’s Guide

The learning activities in the four-lesson teacher's guide help teachers and students think and talk about genocide, colonialism, othering, bullying, forgiveness, and reconciliation, as well as their personal experiences as victims, bystanders, upstanders, and perpetrators of violence. The guide prepares young people for viewing the documentary film by deepening their understanding of Rwanda’s unprecedented social experiment in government-mandated unity and reconciliation, as revealed through the eyes of survivors and perpetrators of the 1994 genocide.

The guide is a free PDF download. You may also wish to purchase a copy of the film or download the People of Coexist PDF, which supports a variety of activities in the guide.
