Product Description
Have to teach a mini-unit on apartheid in South Africa? Or do you have to teach an entire unit on apartheid? This mini-unit includes activities, homework ideas, an assessment, quiz, media resources and a historical fiction narrative guideline tailored for middle school teachers. These lessons incorporate the Common Core and promote usage of non-fiction text, intensive reading, citing examples, and using factual evidence. Teachers of social studies, or literacy teachers looking to include social studies in reading/writing lessons can find use of these activities.

Teachers of high school can also find these ideas useful as they are fully flexible, manageable and can be used as warm ups, full lessons or extension activities. Through this document, teachers will also receive suggestions on materials that can be used to help teach this topic. Students will learn about the laws during apartheid, important vocabulary, how apartheid compares to Jim Crow Laws and about the efforts of historical figures such as Nelson Mandela.
