For now — I would advise writing out a one-page journal entry tonight that answers the question: what topic or issue am I the most interested in that arises in some way in the pages of Infidel, Persepolis, and one other text we have watched/studied this quarter (Hotel Rwanda, “Girl,” “The Colonel,” “Into Mexico”). Explain what about that topic you want to know, why you care about it, and what questions you have about it.
If you’re reading this right now, I would advise getting that done before class tomorrow. That way, you can spend some class time tomorrow looking for quotations to include in your draft. I will give you a little class-time to start that before we get back to Hotel Rwanda.

Finish typing up that document you began in class today — make sure you address two questions. Print it and bring it to class on Monday. I’m looking for a minimum of 1.5 pages, double-spaced, TNR, 12-pt font, etc.
If you were absent, we were addressing the big ideas from Persepolis and writing about two of them. These can be questions and ideas that you came up with / were on your mind, or ones from the question sheet I handed out in class.
