First Day of Racial Segregation in Humanities
After the class had the discussion about the Do-Now, Ms.Vallillo made the students go in a gallery walk throughout the class room. The classroom was filled with posters and artifacts that represented segregation in south africa and students had to write down there findings and questions about what they saw. One of the most interesting artifacts was a big piece of paper that had the names, ages, and causes of death of all of the victims in The Soweto Uprising in South Africa, 1976. In this mass killing 100+ people dies including young babies.
With the information the class already knew about the killing, each pair of students in the class made a popplet chart with there questions and what they already knew about it. Even thought it was the first time most of the kids had used popplet, most of the students did a great job expressing what they knew.
