A good resource for teachers to use when teaching about conflict in other countries. The use of clips from a child soldier's life in Sierra Leone is a good way to get the students interested in the topic.

This is a good resource for teachers, containing a Human Rights Lesson Plan and activity links based on a child soldier's life in Sierra Leone. It contains links to film clips from Ishmael Beah's session in the human rights center.
