Social 10: Rwanda

This is a cartoon aimed at younger audiences but we’ll use it for our purposes. In your NOTES folder include a summary of each page of the comic strip. Tie in, where applicable, how this connects to our course outcomes:

2.8 explore the relationship between historical globalization and imperialism

2.9 examine multiple perspectives on the political, economic and social impacts of historical globalization and imperialism

2.11 analyze contemporary global issues that have origins in policies and practices of post-colonial governments in Canada and other locations

2.13 examine legacies of historical globalization and imperialism that continue to influence globalization

4.7 evaluate relationships between globalization and democratization and human rights

4.9 explore multiple perspectives regarding the civic responsibilities that individuals, governments, organizations and businesses may have in addressing opportunities and challenges presented by globalization


Consider this question:

“Are we our brother’s or sister’s keeper? What responsibility do we have for the safety and care of family? Friends? Neighbors? Others?”

Write your response and include it in your ASSIGNMENTS folder with the title “Rwanda Pre-Write”.


You are to consider this comic along with five articles of your choosing. One of those articles must involve Romeo Dallaire. At least TWO must also be a *’d article.

(-2 students: Three articles total — one of your choice, one involving Dallaire, and one *)
