South Africa Divided

You want to convince a friend in South Africa to work to end apartheid.  Write a letter to your friend presenting your case.  Be sure to include the laws of apartheid, living under apartheid both as a black man and as a white man, and the economic and political effects of apartheid.

Writing About People

Write about somebody you read about in Unit 4:  World Regions in Transition.  Discuss the person’s achievements and his or her importance in history.  I encourage you to look up your chosen subject in the index, go back and reread everything about that person and his/her times in the text, and use any other knowledge gained to create a vivid profile showing how that person reflected his/her times and contributed to or changed them.  Be sure to select a historical figure that your classmates have not chosen.
