The haitian team has been working a lot with Memorize. You can find
some lesson plans here: http://olpchaiti.org/w/start?do=index (french)
A very general but powerful activity we also experimented: let the
kids create a newspaper from scratch. The topic was: Haitian public
transportation. The children went in the streets with the XO, made
interviewed of people, took pictures of cars, buses, etc, wrote about
ideas they had etc. Activities involved: Write and Record. I was not
present when they did this, but I can redirect you to someone who can
give more details, just let me know.
