In this mini-research assignment, students compare apartheid to a similar event in history (i.e. Holocaust, Civil Rights Movement, Women's Suffrage etc.). I have provided a graphic organizer web for brainstorming (whole-class activity) to provide students with a foundation of similar events in history to compare/contrast with apartheid.
After completing the brainstorming web, students select ONE event in history (from the web graphic organizer) to compare with apartheid. Students then complete their own research and produce their comparison in some form of artistic or visual representation. Students must conduct genuine research for this assignment, which also involves synthesis and writing.
