In my class on Human Rights I have a video project that focuses on understanding how genocide occurs and the importance of getting the information out to the world. I break the girls into groups of four and give them each a genocide. They research their topic, with an emphasis on understanding how it occurred. They also watch a relevant film. Then they create a film which as the purpose of telling the world about this genocide. They need to raise awareness, engage compassion, and explain the background. I am often surprised by what they can do on this project.
