This is a fantastic cross curricular essay assignment combining ELA and Social Studies. After students study the Rwandan Genocide and view Frontline's, "Ghosts of Rwanda" students will have to argue both sides of the question: "Should the US have intervened in Rwanda?"
Short rubric is included, as well as space to begin planning support. The link to the video is on the sheet as well.
Students MUST give specific, factual, detailed support for both positions! Great argumentative topic!
