Historical Heroes

Young scholars explore the concept of "the ends justifying the means" by examining the behavior of historical and fictional heroes. They view and discuss a video on the Gangs of New York and Les Miserables. Then they break into small groups to chose an event in recent history, such as the invasion of Iraq, to write an essay on whether the ends can justify the means.
