I used Baraka as the final in my Modern World classes this year. Every student made thoughtful connections to what they have been learning in history and science classes as well as their personal thoughts. Would 15-year olds be able to think critically while focusing on 80 minutes of no words or plot. They will and the classes were unusually well behaved. Many of their responses were very insightful. Baraka is now a part of my repertoire.
