Students learn about culture in Chad through the eyes of two Peace Corps Volunteers: Michael Varga, who served in Chad from 1977-1979, and Fan Yang, who served there almost thirty years later, in 2005-2006. Both Volunteers were evacuated due to civil war. Students will watch a slide show and examine primary sources–letters sent home from Michael Varga during his service–to learn about the geography and culture of Chad, as well as how his Peace Corps experience shaped his future. Students will study photographs and stories from Fan Yang's time in Chad to compare the two Volunteers' experiences

Excellent lesson on cultural adaptations in Chad by two peace corps volunteers. Students compare the experiences of the two volunteers. This lesson includes procedures, slide show, readings, frameworks and extension activities.
