How We Determine Our Grades

A group of Tennessee school students attempt to collect six million paperclips, representing each Jew who died in the Holocost, in the documentary Paperclips. When mandatory ballroom dance lessons are introduced into the New York City school district, a group of fifth-graders prepare for competition in the film Mad Hot Ballroom. In both cases, these activities have a profound effect upon the worlds these students live in.

Actor Don Cheadle starred in the movie Hotel Rwanda, a dramatized look at the genocide that happened there.
