-Example outline of the finished assignment
-Rubric for grading
As an anticipation to reading Night (by Elie Wiesel) we discuss how the Holocaust is not the only genocide in history, and the fact that genocides are still happening today.
With this assignment, students create a powerpoint focusing on a specific modern day genocide (a list is provided-the teacher can assign topics or let their students chose!) It also covers research components of the standards!
This project can be done individually or as partners/groups and ends with a presentation component.
This assignment pairs well with Holocaust units for history class as well as English classes when reading Night, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, or Anne Frank's Diary.
