Today’s Homework: January 20th, 2016

1.   This first assignment is from the geography survey I gave you a couple of weeks ago.   Check the map survey answers I gave you.  Then, check out my brand perception of each country listed on the sheet attached to the map.   Finally,  give me your brand perception of the country of Russia.  Watch the news this week; listen carefully to what is being said about Russia.  Check out your favorite news source for Russia information.  If you don’t have a favorite news source, you should find one.  As students preparing for college and networking with successful people, you need to know what is going on in the world.  Russia is one of the most talked about topics in the news TODAY.   There is no right or wrong answer. I am asking for your opinion, your perception of Russia.

Send your statement about your perception of Russia’s brand with perfect spelling, short sentences and good punctuation to my email address by Thursday morning, January 26th  at 3:45am.  Thank you.

2.  Lois Kelly today spoke about the importance and the benefit of knowing what is important to the person you are speaking with during a conversation about ‘change’. Since we are frequently speaking about change in our class, I am curious about what’s important to you.  Please tell me what is important to you.   As always, send your statement with perfect spelling, short sentences and good punctuation to my email address by Thursday morning, January 26th  at 3:45am.  Thank you.

3.  If you haven’t established a LinkedIn profile of yourself, please set one up this week and then, send a ‘connect’ request to me.   LinkedIn is an important networking tool for getting jobs and getting into the college of your choice.  If you have trouble doing this, ask Sara, Mohamadou, Yael, Imani, or Justin for help.  They have set up profiles successfully and connected with me on LinkedIn. Thank you.  I look forward to adding you to my LinkedIn network.
