On Friday, we watched Dateline NBC’s special, Winds of War. Take a few minutes to review the video and reflect on our viewing of it; you may rewatch any clips as needed.
In a multi-paragraph response, discuss:
- What ideas, information, or statements stood out to you from the video segments? Why?
- After your research on issues in Africa (and many of you focused on Sudan) and after watching these video segments, do you think the United States and President Obama should take a stronger stance on advocating for peace in Sudan (http://sudanactionnow.org/index)? Why or why not?
- If you could pose one “how” or “why” question to either George Clooney or journalist Ann Curry, what would you ask?
Your responses should be thoughtful and well developed (hint—3) paragraphs. Please ask for help if you need any clarification on the directions for thinking and writing or if you have any questions. Please post your response HERE in the comment field of this class blog.
