This is a sub unit from my Human Rights Unit in a Contemporary Issues class I teach. My two essential questions for this unit are:
1.) Why are global human rights important?
2.) What global responsibilities does the United States have as the world’s last remaining superpower?
This unit on Saddam Hussein provides a powerpoint with two video links, numerous assignments and sources included. I also provide an outline/explanation of directions that can act as a guide. I also include a "Check Up" (pop quiz) which I find works well for review. The answers are provided for this as well.
To make this unit more effective I suggest purchasing the "Iraqi Most Wanted" playing cards. I bought them at a Tag Sale local, but they can be bought online very low priced. It is not mandatory for these assignments, but I found success.
You are looking at at least a few days of class work here and work provided can be used for a substitute as well. I found success with these materials can hope you do too.
