I used this power point when I taught a unit on Africa. This power point introduces students to imperialism (a concept the will learn more about in US History) and the scramble for Africa. It uses political cartoons, quotes, and open ended questions to get students to think critically for themselves. At the end of the power point there is a quote from the movie Hotel Rwanda, and the students have to reflect on it and explain what they think the quote means. It gives them some insight to other countries response to the genocide in Africa.
