Mrs. C. from Brooklyn NY is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Studying Genocide - a Terrible Yet Necessary Inclusion...

The cost of sending 27 students to see Hotel Rwanda and providing a post-screening discussion is $452, including lunch and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

...in my Humanities class. We are currently exploring the lessons that should have been learned from the Holocaust. Yet we are faced with recent examples of genocide in such places as Bosnia, Cambodia, and Rwanda. I would like to take my Holocaust studies class to the Brooklyn Academy of Music to participate in their workshop on genocide beginning with a showing of the film, Hotel Rwanda, and continuing with a seminar conducted by B.A.M.'s prestigious teaching artists. As a class, we are exploring these topics through a variety of mediums; but, I feel that this experience would enhance my curriculum and get my Brooklyn high school students out of the classroom and into a novel setting with fresh exposure. In addition, since we are walking distance to a theater to which they have probably never been exposed, the experience would be multifaceted. If you could include a light lunch in Junior's after the seminar, they would be most appreciative!
