This WebQuest was done by a group of third year pre-service student teachers at the University of the Witwatersrand. Outstanding!

The topic that the learners will be dealing with is Struggle Songs, one of which is called Gimme Hope Jo’anna. The meaning behind these struggle songs represents something more powerful such as Apartheid. This is relevant to the lives of the learners as the learners will, through a process of exploration, come to discover that all texts have a context, and that that context is crucial in understanding the essence of the text. Learners will also be required to reflect on the relevance of an event in the shaping of our society in post-Apartheid South Africa.

This lesson was developed as part of the English, Arts and Culture and Human and Social Sciences Curricula for Grade 9’s at any particular South African High School. However this can be taught worldwide provided that the learners have prior knowledge on South Africa’s History.

The focal point of this Web Quest, as mentioned above, is the real-world connections that the learners will encounter. The learners will also utilise the skills and knowledge required to complete the set tasks. The skills necessary for English requires the learners to analyse the song/poem, focus on the meaning of the song/poem, and finally extract the following figures of speech: similes, imagery and metaphors. The skills necessary for Arts and Culture requires the learners to focus on Character, Language, and Dramatic tension while producing their skit, as well as the Interpretation and performance of a choice which incorporates: Physical Expressiveness and Emotional Connection. The skills necessary for Human and Social Sciences requires the learner to focus wholly on Apartheid and Forced Removals in South Africa. This incorporates the 1948 National Party and Apartheid which deals with how Apartheid affected people’s lives. It then focuses on how forced r

  11. 11. Teacher Page introduction continued … Essential Question:- Top • How do people express their political feelings?Introduction o An Essential Question (EQ) is the overarching, open-ended question that guides the project. This question leads the learners into the specifics of the project, and once the Learner learners have completed the WebQuest, they will be able to in part answer the Essential Question. This question, pedagogically, requires the higher order thinking, as explained by Outcomes Bloom‟s Revised Taxonomy. The suggested answer that learners should come up with at the end of this WebQuest is that people express their political feelings through a number of Process means, one being song. We can interpret these feelings through an analysis of the imagery and literary devices used. Resources Unit Questions:- Evaluation The Unit Questions (UQ) are questions that do not address content directly, but are answerable in an essay format, for example. They are still open-ended, but less open-ended than an Essential Conclusion Question. • What forms do political voices take?Student page o This Unit Question makes learners think about different modes and media, and how people use these in order to express their feelings about political issues such as Credits oppression and racism. • What effect does political change have on people? o This looks at the empathy of the topic at hand. The learners are to explore the ways in which legislative changes can influence and affect ordinary citizens‟ lives.
  12. 12. Teacher Page Learners Group score: Top This WebQuest was developed with South African learners in mind, at a Grade 9 (agedIntroduction approximately 14 to 15 years of age) level. All South African Grade 9 learners are required to complete a subject known as Human and Social Learner Sciences (HSS). This subject comprises a History component as well as a Geography component. This WebQuest is directly addressing the CAPS Specific Aims for the History component. Outcomes Apartheid is a major theme in the CAPS HSS curriculum, and learners should have already learned about Apartheid according to the Specific Aims. The learners should also have the skills in Process order to analyse poetry (in this case, song) in terms of metaphors, similes, personification and Resources imagery. The learners are of a mixed background. They come from mixed socio-economic contexts. The Evaluation great thing about this WebQuest when taught in a South African context is that most (if not all) of the learners have an understanding of Apartheid and can most likely speak to someone who has Conclusion lived in the Apartheid years.Student page The learners come from a mixed race pool. White, African, Indian, Mixed Race and other ethnicities are represented in a typical classroom and the learners will work together. This Credits WebQuest does not aim to create further divisions among races. It simply aims to educate all about artists‟ perceptions of Apartheid. Next
  13. 13. Teacher Page Learners continued… Top The WebQuest is intended for English Home Language speakers. If you do have second languageIntroduction learners in your class, support them by grouping them with stronger learners, or by providing one-on- one remediation. Learner This WebQuest caters to a range of Multiple Intelligences. The auditory-visual learners will be Outcomes stimulated in the reading and watching of information in the process of gathering data for their product and performance, and the linguistic learners will be particularly engaged in the analysing of Process the verses. The kinaesthetic and musical learners will be stimulated by performing the skit. The interpersonal learners will enjoy working with other people and creating a product.

Learner • Communicate effectively using visual, symbolic and/or language skills in various modes. • Organise and manage themselves and their activities responsibly and effectively. Outcomes Curriculum Framing Questions: Process Essential Question:- Resources • How do people express their political feelings? o This question relates to the whole of the Human and Social Sciences (HSS) Specific Aim Evaluation related to Apartheid. This question will be dealt with throughout the WebQuest and answered in part by the findings of the Content Questions. Conclusion Unit Questions:- • What forms do political voices take?Student page o This relates more to the Home Language modes and media Specific Aim, as it deals with forms of expression. Also it links to the Arts and Culture Learning area as it looks at the Credits emotional connection with writing and interpretations of those texts. This question will be dealt with when the learners look at the meaning of the song, as well as at the end of the WebQuest when they are encouraged to learn more about Struggle Songs and poetry. Next
  16. 16. Teacher Page outcomes continued … Top • What feelings do they express?Introduction o This question looks at the empathy side of History (a component of HSS), where learners are given insight into the emotions and lives of people affected by a historical event. This Learner question will be addressed when the learners critically analyse the stanzas that they are allocated and decipher the meaning and in turn decipher the emotions behind the words. Outcomes Content Questions:- • What events gave rise to songs? Process o This question will deal directly with the HSS Specific Aim dealing with Apartheid and Forced Removals. This question will be dealt with in the part of the WebQuest where the Resources learners have to research Apartheid and its effects on people. • What kinds of words, imagery and sound devices give us a sense of the event? Evaluation o This question looks at the literary devices learned in the Home Language, as outlined in the Skills of Poetry. This will be directly looked at when the learners are required to Conclusion complete a short tutorial-style worksheet reminding them of sound devices and literary devices.Student page Credits Assessment is discussed on the next slide Next
  17. 17. Teacher Page outcomes continued … Top The learners‟ progress will be assessed largely formatively, through the use of rubrics (which haveIntroduction been provided on the Evaluation page. Familiarise yourself with the rubrics before attempting to use them as an assessment tool. Feel free to edit them should they not suit your requirements. The Learner marks are designated as follows: Outcomes Product (the report on the verse of the song) 30 marks Process Performance (the skit of the verse of the song) 40 marks Collaboration 30 marks Resources Total 100 marks Evaluation ConclusionStudent page Credits
  18. 18. Teacher Page Top Process This WebQuest is a multidisciplinary project that incorporates English, Social Science and Arts and Culture. At the commencement of this WebQuest the learners are to be grouped into groups of four. AIntroduction suggestion when grouping the learners into groups is to incorporate one proficient English learner, Learner one proficient Social Science learner and two less proficient learners in English and Social Science. The WebQuest is to be done with one class, however, certain aspect will be divided into the different Outcomes disciplines. Process The time allocated for this WebQuest is roughly 2 to 3 weeks. Resources Allocation of time as follows according to the learner’s process page: Evaluation 1. You will be assigned to a group of 4 learners. Decide who gets what roles. Don‟t decide on the roles before you have read what each one entails! Also, EVERY MEMBER OF THE GROUP Conclusion MUST PARTICIPATE AND CONTRIBUTE EQUALLY IN EACH ACTIVITY. • (10 minutes – English)Student page The teachers must monitor what roles the learners have chosen and if they Credits do what is required of them. Use a copy of the classlist to do this. Next
  19. 19. Teacher Page process continued… Top 2. Read this information on struggle songs and poetry and complete the activity.Introduction • (45 minutes – English) Allow for the learners to reflect about the struggle songs and poetry read, through a class discussion. This allows you to monitor whether or not Learner they have read the songs and poems. Marking of the activity will give the teacher an indication as to whether or not the learners have grasped the concepts of similes, Outcomes metaphors and imagery. If they were unable to grasp these concepts, a lesson can be done in order to get them on track. See the of the activity. Process 3. Read the lyrics to the song Give Me Hope Jo’anna by Eddy Grant. Resources Click on this link to hear the song and see the music video 4. Read what it means according to the writer. (45 minutes – Evaluation 5. Now read the interpretation of the song. Remember to click on the Social Science) “next” arrow at the bottom of the webpage in order to read more. Conclusion • Here the Social Science teacher can give the learners further information about the time of Apartheid and in what context the writer had written the song. Also, discussStudent page how people felt in this era, the geographical context, the economy of South Africa and so on. Credits Next
  20. 20. Teacher Page process continued… Top 6. Your teacher will give you a verse of the song to analyse in your groups.Introduction a. What similes, metaphors and imagery are there in the verse? (45 minutes – English) b. What do they mean (remember, this is in a historical context. Learner Use your knowledge of the events and key features of Apartheid to guide your interpretation)? Outcomes • When assigning the groups with the verses of the song, as a teacher you can give the less proficient groups the more literal verses and the more proficient groups the Process more figurative verses. If learners struggle with English, the teacher can go through the lyrics of the song together asking the learners to extract the similes, metaphors Resources and imagery. 7. Once all the analyses of the verses are completed, your teacher will hold a class discussion in Evaluation order for the groups to report back their findings on the verses and see if you are correct in what you have been discussing and analysing. Conclusion • (30 Minutes – English)Student page As a teacher here is your opportunity to identify any misunderstandings. Remember that students are unlikely to admit that they are unsure of what their verse means. Credits Therefore, open ended questions need to be asked to extract their knowledge of the song. NEVER ask the learners: “Do you understand the song?”. The learners will just say yes and no discussion will take place. Next
  21. 21. Teacher Page process continued… Top 8. Now you can write a mini essay on your findings. It will help you in designing your portion of the music video. This report is for submission to your Social Sciences teacher. See the EvaluationIntroduction Page for how your report will be assessed. • (45 Minutes – English) Learner If mini-essay writing is new to your learners provide them with examples of mini- essays, as well as a writing frame if they are really unsure of and poor in English Outcomes 9. Use your new-found understanding of the verse that you have been given. Dramatize the verse as if you were in the music video- use props, choreography, costumes etc, in order to reflect the Process true meaning of the song. See the Evaluation Page for how your skit will be assessed. • (1 week – In Arts and Culture to make props and costumes, choreograph and Resources produce their music video) o Allow for 1 lesson to plan Evaluation o How they are going to structure the performance, o The props and costumes they will utilize, Conclusion o What materials they will need to make their props, and costumes, and who isStudent page going to choreograph and direct the performance. Allow for Credits o 2 lessons to make props and costumes o 3 lessons to practice and choreograph their performance. Monitor learners constantly so that they are up-to-date with the necessary requirements. One can create a checklist for the learners to keep them on track. Next
  22. 22. Teacher Page process continued… Top Adaptations of lesson:Introduction 1. If learners are unable to be placed in four equal groups, one can assign two roles to the most proficient learner such as Clock-Watcher and Editor. Clock-Watcher is a highly simplistic role Learner so assigning that to a learner will not be daunting. 2. If one does not have enough computers in the school, teachers can print the struggle songs, Outcomes poetry and worksheet for the group. 3 – 5 . The reading of „Give me hope Jo‟anna‟, the meaning and interpretation can also be printed Process and analysed in the classroom. 6. The analyses of the different verses are done in class and a class discussion can be done prior Resources to the group analysing the song. 7. This discussion is used to draw in all the fragment verses of the song in order to get a cohesive Evaluation understanding of the song before the learners write their essay. If a class discussion cannot be done, then allow for each group to present their findings. Learners and teachers can comment Conclusion on their findings and add additional information to the presentation. 8. If the learners lack the skills of writing a mini essay, one can create a writing frame for theStudent page learners to follow. 9. If there is no budget to attain props or costumes, allow the learners to re-use and recycle certain Credits objects. If the school does have a camera, one can record the learner‟s performance and place it on YouTube – remember to get the learners‟ parent‟s permission. Another option for the presentation of the learners video is to allow them to present this at a parents‟ evening. Next
  23. 23. Teacher Page process continued… Top Mini Lessons: Referencing, Information literacy, Using Information Effectively, Collaboration, Cooperation, GoalIntroduction Setting and staying on task: these are mini lesson that are done by the learners. However, if you do Learner feel that the learners will struggle with these certain subskills, present them as a lesson in class before going to the computer labs. Outcomes Evaluation of students: Process Rubrics are designed to do the following: • To serve as guidelines for what is expected in a final product, including points on which a grade Resources can be based • To provide students with a structural picture of an excellent paper Evaluation • To provide an organized approach to revision, which is the key to a student writers growth • Read more on TeacherVision: http://www.teachervision.fen.com/rubrics/teaching- Conclusion methods/6340.html#ixzz1bt257z7YStudent page Marking with the rubric helps the learners to know exactly what is required of them as well as giving the teacher a clear guideline as to what they are looking for in the product. Present the learners with Credits the task and the rubric, in order for the learners to have a clear understanding of what is required of them. To print out a hard copy of these process slides
  24. 24. Teacher Page Top Resources Needed Here is a list of all of the resources used in this WebQuest. They have been segmented into categories for easy navigation.Introduction Informational Resources Learner • This website was used to give the learners a brief history of Apartheid. It is not meant to be long or detailed, as the learners should have learned the detail of what Apartheid was in their Human Outcomes and Social Sciences class already. This is just a brief „reminder‟ for the learners. http://www.southafrica-travel.net/history/eh_apart1.htm Process • This website provides the learners with an extremely brief outline of South African History since it was discovered, in simple, learner-friendly language. Resources http://www.timeforkids.com/destination/south-africa/history-timeline Evaluation • This resource was used in order to get the lyrics of the song, Give Me Home Jo‟anna by Eddy Grant, for the learners to analyse. They may print them out if they wish and make personal notes Conclusion when analysing the song. http://www.lyricscrawler.com/song/88661.htmlStudent page • In order to allow the learners to understand the context of the song, it is important to understand the artist‟s reasoning for writing the song in the first place. This brief webpage gives the reader Credits insight into the thought of the artist. The comments by readers are also interesting. Check on a regular basis that they are appropriate, as people can change them. http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=3370 Next
  25. 25. Teacher Page Top Resources Needed • This is a more detailed analysis of the prescribed song, and it is not written by Eddy GrantIntroduction himself. Nevertheless, it still provides a platform for deeper understanding and discussion about the song itself as well as the situation in South Africa at the time. Learner http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2275355/the_real_meaning_of_the_song_joana.html?c at=33 Outcomes Additional Resources Required Process Learners should have learned about the Apartheid years in their Grade 9 Human and Social Sciences classroom before attempting this WebQuest. In order to support the learners in this learning process, Resources they should be provided with access to: Evaluation • Appropriate textbooks that may give them additional insight into the concept of Apartheid. A recommended textbook for the South African classroom is Oxford In Search of History for Grade Conclusion 9.Student page • Learners who do not have access to a computer (with Internet) at home with such resources must be given computer time. Ensure that they are not disadvantaged in any way. Credits • Each group should be provided with an audio recording of the song so that they can practise their skit. Each group must be clear about which verse they will be analysing and performing.
  26. 26. Teacher Page Evaluation Top One will know this lesson went well if students are able to identify similes, metaphors and imagery and relay the true meaning in their music video.Introduction Students should be able to work effectively in their groups. They should be able to share the work load evenly. Learner The report writing (see ) is a small part of the total project but allows the academic Outcomes students to succeed and feel more comfortable with the topic and task at hand. By making learners provide referencing trains them for the rest of their schooling as it is a good habit to obtain. But also Process prepares them for referencing once they get to tertiary educational institutions. If your learners are unfamiliar with , teach it as a sub-skill linked to the project. The amount of references you Resources require is up to you depending on your learners. You as the teacher may decide on the length of the report depending on your learners. We recommend about a page long. The report will just ensure Evaluation learners place all their ideas onto paper so that when it comes to creating the performance they do not panic and feel unprepared. Conclusion guides learners in learning skills such as speaking loudly, clearly and at a reasonableStudent page pace. It also teaches learners to respect others while they are presenting. A large portion of the marks are based on this presentation so it is important to emphasise where the learners are getting Credits their marks from. The marks are expressed in a way that those learners who enjoy being in front of the class can do very well and those learners that are more theoretical or academic will also do succeed. It opens up the window for every individual in the class to succeed in one aspect or another. Next
  27. 27. Teacher Page The evaLuation continued… is simple to follow: Top • Contribution examines how each learner contributes to finding resources or evaluating theIntroduction resources given. One person in the group should not do all the work - each learner has their specific role in the project. Therefore the teacher should explain that all learners in the group Learner must examine the same resource and evaluate it according to their individual role. Then, the learners report back to the group making notes that are useful for the task. Once this is done Outcomes they can move onto the next resource. This is an easy way for learners so that they do not get mixed up with what resource they are using, it also helps with referencing at the end. Process • In order for any assignment to be successful, the learners need to be punctual. This includes Resources attending group meetings and completing tasks in the allocated time. This teaches students time management and prepares them for real life. It would be advised for the teacher to stick strictly Evaluation to the time allocations as to create the real feeling of working for a record company, as they will be strict and not allow time extensions. One could also (depending on the class) create “fake” Conclusion emails from NantsIngonyamaRecords (use this ) to keep the learners up to speed, reminding them of things they need to do and/ or add into their presentations.Student page • This assignment will also teach learners to take responsibility as each child is given a role. Therefore one can see what is being done and what is isn‟t. Learners will also learn to work in Credits groups and value other group members‟ opinions. This includes active listening. Learners also need to make decisions that are fair and include everyone in the groups‟ views. Thus, this task will teach learners valuable life skills such as working effectively with others, time management and delegation (so one person is not doing everything).
  28. 28. Teacher Page Top Conclusion This WebQuest is designed to embody the South African Social Science and English Curricula.Introduction However one can use this WebQuest as a template, if one wishes to change the song to fit one‟s country‟s political history. The WebQuest will then best be used as a guideline as to how to structure Learner one‟s own lesson or perhaps one‟s own Web Quest. Outcomes The purpose of this WebQuest is to not only inform learners about South Africa‟s history, but to show how a song can, in many ways describe what happened in that point in history, and how South Process African‟s were affected. Resources The objective is to get the learners to feel empathy while moving through the process of the WebQuest. The learners need to be able to identify and understand the emotions that affected people Evaluation felt during the Apartheid era as well as during post-Apartheid times. Conclusion Teachers will have gained the insight on how to incorporate one theme across the curriculum. The theme in this WebQuest is Apartheid in South Africa, which is expressed through a Struggle Song.Student page This theme is incorporated in English, Social Sciences and Arts and Culture. Credits Teachers will also get to learn with the learners, if not more, as the teachers have access to the Teachers Pages and therefore to extra resources and information. Next
  29. 29. Teacher Page Top concLusion continued…Introduction Learner A WebQuest is a safer way of allowing leaners to explore the internet for relevant information Outcomes pertaining to the WebQuest topic. Therefore majority of the knowledge the learners will acquire, will be through the internet. Learning discretion when analysing information from WebQuests is a Process valuable tool in terms of Information Literacy. Teach learners why you have not just let them use and web-based resource.
