Warm up: Spend 10 minutes gathering definitions for vocabulary and/or studying. Vocab test is on Tuesday!
In the same Holocaust magazine as yesterday, we looked at articles about how genocide happened in more places than just in Europe during the Holocaust. Then we looked at the conflict and Genocide in Rwanda in the 1990s. We finished the period watching the first half of Hotel Rwanda.
Study for your vocab test on Tuesday!
Warm up: no lifeline, just work on finding definitions for vocabulary words for 5 minutes at the start of class.
I found some cool magazines on the Holocaust so we read through p. 26-27 about the liberation (freeing) of the concentration camps. Then write at least a half a page responding to the reflection questions at the bottom of p. 27.
