American Government 9/2/09

In Class - In groups, come up with your own definition of torture. Then, discuss the scenarios from the handout: What is torture? After you have discussed and explained why you believe these are examples of torture, grab a copy of the excerpts from the Geneva Convention. Take a look at the scenario again and see if any of your responses change based on the evidence from the Geneva Convention. Begin watching video: The Torture Question. I want you to take a few notes from this video on the same sheet of paper as the scenarios.

Homework - Stay current on your current events. QOW due by Friday.

If you want to take a look at the video we are watching in class, here is the link:
