Today, October 31, 2013, in humanities we started the class by doing a quick thank you note to Mr. Fernandez. After, all the students opened their computers and logged into quizlet to study the Soweto Uprising and the Apartheid. Our learning targets that Ms.Vallillo set for us today are: I can explain what APARTHEID is and I can write a factual summary without personal bias.
Next, we all opened a document and filled in what the meanings of the laws in the Apartheid. We used little cards to research on the laws. We had to summarize the laws in our own words and we had to get a picture that makes you remember about the meaning of the law. After that, we began to pre read the book Out Of Bounds and we got to read the first few pages. We read the back cover of the book first and we got to know that the book has something about the Apartheid because they say they live near Johannesburg, that is in Africa, and they are in 1948.
