Students are wrapping up their unit on India this week by watching and discussing the Richard Attenborough film Gandhi. We will be discussing key aspects of Gandhi's peaceful movement to rid India of British rule, and we will talk about his influence over other civil rights leaders.

For homework this week, students will research and write about the following:

1) Where was Gandhi educated?

2) What was his profession before he became an activist for civil rights?

3) What incident sparked his activism?

As usual, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to drop me a line at bidellb@nhalv.org.
