Africa Study Guide - 10/29/2014

1. Take out your Composition Book and a pen/pencil. You will need it to finish African Proverbs.

CHROMEBOOKS CLOSED FOR AFRICAN PROVERBS ACTIVITY

2. Finish African Proverbs - handout HERE - Today you will finish the discussion we began as a class yesterday.
  • We already read and discussed proverbs #1-10 yesterday. Today, begin by silently reading #11-20. Pause and reflect on each one. Underline one or two that really speak to you. Share with your table group, and then share as a class. What do you think these proverbs mean?
  • Continue this with #21-30. Then #31-40. Then #41-52.
  • See if you can figure out which of these are Mr. Ippolito's favorites (he has three favorites, and he will share that with you tomorrow).

3. Begin work on the Africa Study Guide (handout HERE). You may need a textbook for this, so there are a couple at each table group.
