Class Scribe Oct 21, 2014

Tarik acting as class scribe.
Our learning targets were:
1.0: I can write an accurate historical fiction narrative that demonstrates a sophisticated understanding  of apartheid.
4.0: I can conduct high-quality research about South Africa + Apartheid

Today we began with the Do Now. We had to watch a video you can find here. Then we had to note down info you learned from this video and new questions you have. After the time was over, we shared some things we learned of questions we had.

We then began our Lit Circle Quiz for the story named "The Typewriter". When we were done, we had our Lit Circle Discussions. But first, Ms. Vallillo wanted us to talk about some questions. They were: What is a typewriter? What is it used for? and How might it relate to language? Then we began Lit Circle Discussions, and I heard many groups have great discussions. For several minutes everyone was participating and discussing, I think everyone did a good job.

After Lit Circles, Ms. Vallillo showed us a quote.
"Language is fundamental to cultural identity. This is so for people everywhere. A culture's unique world is expressed in their language. For this reason, it is important that people keep their own language alive." Everyone started discussing with their partners, and again, everyone had a good discussion. We had to go to our google docs and find the document named "The Bantu Education Act- (your name). We had to answer all of the questions, page 1 and 2.

The homework for today was to make a summary of the video on the research note catcher. Have a good day!
