Alean (25.4.): I share, very much, Céderic's impression.
Cédric (23/4): I see that you have not made a lot of efforts since the beginning of this project. And so I'm asking myself how you will manage this backlog of business?

Gerber (18/3): Please go to my note at "Between mother and father". There I added an important comment.

Alean 17.3.: Dear Raphael Rafael and Alex: I am deeply concerned about the small amount of material which is, at this stage, evident on the Wiki. All I see is a number of text passages you identified in the book. But there is little in terms of interpretation, and nothing on South Africa in general and tribalism on a world scale. Perhaps you already have a lot of material collected, organized and interpreted offline. In that case it is imperative that you place it on the Wiki immeditely so that Mr. Gerber and me may edit such text or give you constructive feedback. If, on the other hand, this is not the case you need to start a massive effort now in order to avert failure.

Gerber: "We found a new link" is not precise enough. What is his link useful for? What sort of info can you find there?

Over the weekend we will completely finish the part about Bantu in South africa. We discovered that we make the chapter conclusion in our chapter Bantu in South Africa.

We found a new link: http://www.mythicjourneys.org/bigmyth/myths/english/eng_zulu_pantheon.htm

Today we read some wikipedia articles about the Zulu. For example, we learned somehing about Unkulunkulu xD the God of the Zulu. We decided to limit ourselves to the Zulu, because Mr. Gerber told us, the differenves between the ethnic groups were too small.

Gerber: Your aims as set out in the Journal below make sense now. As far as I am concerned, you can limit yourselves to ONE large ethnic group (plus the Shangaan and Venda people). Their cultural differences are minimal and it will take you too much time to realize exactly this. It would make sense to focus on the Zulus, for example. Please capitalize the names of these ethnic groups.

Today we finished the arrangement of our two subjects, bantu culture in KB and Bantu culture in SA. We will investigate three of the largest ethnic groups of the Bantu, but also smaller groups like the shangaan and the venda, Johannes' partens' tribes. We will write about their religions, their languages, their history and their differneces. In the passage about Kaffir, we will write about issues between Johannes and his tribal environment, and how the superstition and the faith of his parents have an influence on his life and his thinking.

Alean:
Alex and Rafael: Please take better care of the "working environment" in the Geography classroom. Try not to distract other groups. There is definitely too much giggling going on. Note that other groups today have been working very quietly.


08 March 2010

Today, we decided , after finishing our research, to write our first text about the bantu culture. On Friday, we found a quite good page about religion, which also contains material about religions in South Africa.
