About the Workshops:
Teaching About the Effect of Armed Conflict on Children will explore the multiple devastating effects of armed conflict on children in Sub Saharan Africa.

Using primary sources from the Library of Congress and first-hand accounts from African Nationals and UN personnel, teachers broaden their perspectives on this real world problem and learn how to use first hand experiential learning and primary sources to teach about global problems.

These workshops produce teacher developed cross curricular lesson plans and also use interactive videoconferencing technology to connect with the UN Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, UNICEF and the Department of Public Information.
