Y7 Significance Homework

 As we discovered in class, 'significance' is sometimes hard to pin down.  

Someone's significance can be seen as their impact over time, you might only be able to see someone's significance years after their life or achievement. 



Nelson Madela's significance has many explanations. One is that he sacrificed his freedom to make a point that it is not okay to treat people differently based on skin colour.  He also became a role model to other black South Africans by showing through his own example that you can achieve your ambitions, peacefully, even in a country as divided as South Aftica.  Furthermore he demonstrated the power of forgiveness over revenge when in power. 

Choose someone you believe to be significant, put their photo in your book and explain some reasons why you believe them to be significant.  Good luck, see me if you have an idea but don't know how to explain their significance. ��
