Nelson Mandela and Apartheid through Time magazine covers quiz
Tuesday 21 January 2014
I have just published this quiz as part of a lesson plan on Nelson Mandela’s fight against Apartheid.
This interactive activity features 11 Time magazine covers from 1966 to 2013.
The quiz also links to a pdf document that gives more details about what I have planned for my students:
Students search the web while taking the quiz to find basic information about the event featured in each issue and match it with the correct date.
Students write a 2 to 4 sentence summary of each event.
Students make their own Time cover using an online generator and write the feature article in their own Time issue.
To achieve this goal, students work on how to write headlines and how to write a news article or report.
