You are part of a research team whose first job will be to investigate and discover the origin, definition, and stages of genocide. 

Once you fully understand the term and its link to the Holocaust, your team will choose an act of genocide, other than the Holocaust, from a list that I have provided. 

Your research team will then research and investigate the chosen act, create a PowerPoint presentation to relate that information to the class, and construct a memorial to pay tribute to the victims. 

Individually, you will use your team's research to draft a persuasive letter to the U.S. Secretary of State that answers the question addressed in the introduction and conveys your opinion concerning our country's moral responsiblity to fellow countries.
