Today you had CD quiz for chapters 11-13.
We discussed Kumalo's perspective a bit, trying to recognize his beliefs, but not let them get in the way of understanding his perspective.
We chatted about chapter 12, which was confusing. The discussion was about whether or not education can be a solution to crime--two opposing viewpoints were offered through this chapter, in which we are placed in a meeting with people we have not met.
We started, just started, to read 14 in class. Read through 17 by tomorrow.
If you're having trouble with CD quizzes, take notes to help you remember who people are and what is happening.
HW - see the reading schedule
1. Today: CD quiz on chapters 9-10
2. We read pages 67-8 (the section dealing with mines) and you watched "The Mine" (William Kentridge) courtesy of Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/16257236 or watch below.
You wrote 1st - what you noticed 2nd, how it connected to the reading.
3. Journal entry DOCUMENT HERE about the first quote from Stephen Kumalo using the question written below it. Look up "catalyst" before you answer the question.
HW - read through chapter 13 for tomorrow (see updated reading schedule).
SAD - if you missed class, that video is no longer available: a picture of part of it is here.
You can make connections with this one, but it will not be the same...
Apparently, this didn't publish Friday--technical difficulties. Good thing the reading schedule is already posted. Stick to that and you'll be fine.
Friday: we took a CD quiz through chapter 8.
We went through the discussion questions and read through most of chapter 9.
As you know, finishing chapter 10 is the homework.
Quiz on chapters 1-5
Many of you ignored the prompts: "describe the process of opening the letter, who brings it, what happens while they are deciding to open it..." or "Describe the mining process"
A winning answer: "A girl brings a letter and she rubs her feet against fundisi's table, they talk about poverty and he allows her to go into the kitchen and get some food. She takes forever in the kitchen while they look over the letter..."
Make up CD quizzes by taking notes on chapters as you read them, identifying quotes. I will not except chapter summaries.
You took the Apartheid quiz.
Handout on setting and contrasting Kumalo's home with Johannesburg.
Final draft of fairy tale due tomorrow with all prewrites.
