World Cultures

Mrs. Bagwell -- Room 326

Campbell County High School

Travel early and travel often. Live abroad, if you can. Understand cultures other than your own. As your understanding of other cultures increases, your understanding of yourself and your own culture will increase exponentially.

-Tom Freston

Welcome to World Cultures! I am so glad to have you in my class! I am looking forward to the adventures that we will have this school year. Let's make it a great one!!!

• Answers must be typed onto a Google form and emailed to the teacher.

• A MLA citation must be included at the bottom of your paragraph identifying where

you got your information for your answer.

Day 1 Assignment: Identify and describe in detail what were the conditions that will lead to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. (Political/Social etc.)

Day 2 Assignment: Explain in detail the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. (Who was killing whom? Why?)
