We’ve been working this term on a very burning issue: refugees’ plight and the key role played by the UNHCR to alleviate the suffering of 65 million displaced people.  For their final task the students had to shoot a TV report dealing with the situation in refugee camps and covering the visit of Angelina Jolie, Special Envoy for the United Nation Refugee Agency.    

This term with the first group of students, we worked on the notion of Myths and heroes. In order to illustrate this notion, the movement of the Civil Rights in the USA seemed appropriate since it dealt with prominent figures such as Rosa Parks or Martin Luther King Jr. and their struggles.

After 4 weeks working on the Conquest of the West in the USA, the students were asked to write an article as a budding journalist. This article belongs to the history column entitled “Did you know…?” They were free to speak about the past or the present of native Americans. They aimed at informing their readers on a certain topic, to shed light on facts. Read what they wanted you to know!
