Reviewer Comments:

This is a very good follow-up lesson to the Introduction to the Rwandan Genocide. There is a review of the previous material followed by questions for students to answer while they watch clips from Hotel Rwanda. The questions are thoughtful and force students to think about the best and worst parts of humanity. The lesson also includes a review sheet for previous material taught on the Holocaust. It should be noted that the times for the Hotel Rwanda clips are not included and that there is also an assignment that references Bloom’s Taxonomy.
