The rise of isis.
For this extra credit assignment I would like you watch this 54:00 minute Frontline documentary, “The Rise of ISIS.” The documentary can be accessed here (Links to an external site.). Please be warned, there is graphic imagery in this documentary. If you would like an alternative assignment without scenes of graphic violence I can provide that for you. I can also tell you the exact minutes in the documentary where the violence occurs so you can fast forward through it. You can earn 8 points for doing this extra credit assignment.
