We will be studying two books this semester: Cry, the Beloved Country and In the Time of the Butterflies. We will also be preparing and delivering a persuasive speech on a hot topic. Students will write one research paper this semester as well.

Then, do this:
Introductory Activity #1:
You will sign up with Mrs. Culp for one of the options on this assignment. This assignment is due at the beginning of class tomorrow.
Read through the following sites to give you good background information.
Make a graphic organizer (a Venn diagram would be good) and compare Apartheid and the Civil Rights Movement. You should have at least 5 things for Apartheid, 5 for Civil Rights and at least 3 in common.

Now, read or listen to (if you have headphones) Martin Luther King Jr.'s I have a Dream speech. Compare that with Nelson Mandela's message after the Soweto uprising.
Make sure you are on page 83
After reading/listening to the two speeches write a paragraph comparing and contrasting the two. You can type this and turn it in to the shared folder if you would like.
Introductory Activity #3:
Once you have finished all this you can begin to work on your Glog. I will give you the sign on information for your Glog.
Your Glog should contain at least 6 pictures from each issue (Apartheid and Civil Rights Movement), one audio file, one video file (less than 5 minutes in length) and two important quotes from these topics.
