This assessment was designed as a final assessment for my Student Learning Objective but could be used independently.
Students will need access to three excerpts of speeches, "Court Statement, Pretoria, South Africa, 15 October-7 November 1963", "Statement from the Dock at the Opening of the Defense Case in the Rivonia Trial, Pretoria South Africa, 20 April 1964", "On Release from Prison, Cape Town, South Africa, 11 February 1990".
Students are required to analyze the statements and explain the reasoning of these statements. The questions are derived from the Common Core State Standards for Reading Informational Text.
This could also be used to compare American Civil Rights to the Civil Rights/Apartheid Movement in South Africa.
