3 COMPREHENSIVE POWERPOINTS, STUDENT NOTES, FOLLOW-UP ACTIVITY
This has three components:
1. a PowerPoint introducing eight vocabulary terms students will encounter (such as township, ban, and ethnic group), an optional strategy you can use for having them record the vocabulary (which I've used for a few years now and which seems to help them tremendously), and the reproducible form on which students can use the strategy (or they can do it on notebook paper if they set it up),
2. a PowerPoint telling how apartheid came to be policy in South Africa, along with optional fill-in-the-blank notes for students (and, of course, a teacher's answer version of the same notes), and
3. a PowerPoint telling of the decline and fall of apartheid, including information about Archbishop Tutu, Nelson Mandela, and the worldwide pressure brought to bear on South Africa, along with the same style of notes for students (and teacher answers) as in the earlier PowerPoint.
All together, there are 76 PowerPoint slides, heavy on clear and engaging graphics and photographs. If you wish to shorten them, they are totally editable. The notes are in PDF files, but also in Word documents so that you can edit those if you choose to do so.
My students always find this material very interesting. I could probably cover it in 2 days of 50-minute classes. However, they tend to have a lot of questions, so it generally takes me 3 days (and sometimes spills over into day 4).
