This is a brief 17-slide power point presentation designed to introduce students to the concept of Genocide and provide some information on specific genocides. The lesson also includes a focus on the 1994 Rwandan Genocide as a modern example. This lesson is used in conjunction with students viewing the movie "Hotel Rwanda" and this power point serves as a great introduction to that movie (Hotel Rwanda movie questions are available on TPT for separate purchase).
Some of the specific topics included in the power point are:
- Definition of a genocide
- Five Acts of Genocide as defined by the U.N.
- Stalin's Forced Famine
- Rape of Nanking
- Cambodian Genocide under Pol Pot
- Rwandan Genocide - this is the focus area
The power point is designed simply to introduce students to the concept of genocide and are set up as guided notes so that students can complete them using a skeleton outline. The guided notes outline is available on TPT by searching for "Modern Genocide Guided Notes Outline".
