The second thing that we did is that we answered questions on page 6 of the packed. The questions were about the text we read yesterday (p.8-p.10). The questions were basically about the protest that happened in June 16, 1976 better known as the Soweto Uprising. The Soweto uprising was basically a protest that native South Africans students organized because they didn't want to learn the language Afrikaans. They didn't want to learn because it was the language that the White South Africans used to insult them. Alot of people died, about 550, and even more people got hurt.
The third thing that we did is we did a sheet about the author's perspective. We talked values, limits and people point of views of things. We basically learned that everyone has a different point of view. It doesn't matter if you think like the person or you are open minded you still have a different point of view of things than any other person in the world.
Later we did a chart talking about different points of views of people who were present in the Soweto Uprising. We first talked about Colin Eglin a police officer who was there and saw and killed many people. You might think that he is a horrible person but he is not he had a job and he had to do it. The other person we talked about and saw a video about her was Murphy Morobe she was there too put in the other side of the protest. She saw her little brother get killed by an officer. Her little brother was the first person to get killed in the soweto Uprising. And later we dicussed about the video with our partner(s).
