        Conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo: Causes and Impact | Pushing the Elephant | Lesson 1

        In this lesson, students will make personal connections with a family that has been traumatized and displaced by conflict in their homeland, the Democratic Republic of Congo, or DR Congo. Doing so will help put a human face on a far away and unimaginable conflict that is the deadliest since World War II. Students will then investigate various events in DR Congo's history, determine the causes and impact of the war, and analyze the effects that war has had on women in particular.
