Nelson Mandela and Apartheid through Time magazine covers quiz

Tuesday 21 January 2014
by Laurence Bernard

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.
