As always, we started the class by doing the Do Now. For the Do Now we had to write a scene and explain how the scene was going to move your story about Apartheid.
After the Do Now, Ms. V asked to us what a scene and some of us answered with the informations that we know. Then Ms. V talked about the scenes in the book Out of Bounds, a book about Apartheid. She also talks about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and she says that the author only showed the part when Katniss visited Rue's District 11 because not only Katniss was Rue's ally, people started to put the 3 middle fingers on their lips and people from the Capitol starts to kill them. She said that this scene shows that the author only wrote the only important part.
