I enjoy assigning the videos to my students. The videos are short, to the point, and the quiz allows me to test their knowledge on whatever subject in social studies I am teaching at the time. Great way to memorize science concepts.
The students find it quite engaging. Now I am using it to help me pass the last 2 subtest exams. I also like the ability to create "guided note templates" from the transcripts of each video lesson.
Starting Original Price. Price after trial Starting Price starting today. Naledi coerces her 9-year-old brother to walk to Johannesburg with her to tell Mma. Before they leave, Naledi's friend Poleng gives them sweet potatoes to eat on their trip. She also agrees to tell Nono where they've gone once they're safely away.
Naledi and Tiro don't want Nono and Mmangwane to be angry with them or keep them from going. The siblings walk alongside a lesser-traveled road.
When they come to another village, they walk quickly so as to not attract the attention of the police because policemen in this area are often corrupt.
Outside of the village, they meet a boy who works in an orange orchard. He lets them eat a few oranges and hides them in a shed for the night. They leave early the next morning so as not to anger the orchard's owner. The next day, a driver with oranges in his truck gives them a ride to Johannesburg. He also gives them money to take a bus to the area where their mother works.
After accidentally trying to board a whites-only bus, the siblings find the right bus and meet a young woman named Grace. Grace helps them find their mother's workplace and offers them a place to spend the night in Soweto.
When Naledi and Tiro find their mother, they learn she is a maid for a wealthy white family.
