Today’s Homework: October 9, 2015

Here is your homework assignment for this week.   Send your answers to my email address no later than Tuesday, October 13th, 11:59 pm.  Make sure your answers are well written with good sentence structure, proper grammar (punctuation, capitalization and no ‘run on’ sentences) and perfect spelling.  Thank you.

There is a very specific reason why I am asking you to respond to each of these questions.   Our homework is not ‘busy’ work; it has a specific purpose related to our class objectives.  If you are curious, feel free to ask me anytime about the reason for any assignment or class.

Everything we do in this class, from the people you meet, the field trips we go on and the assignments posted on this site are all designed to reach our Life Skills objectives;

i.e. helping you develop the critical skills necessary to create as many opportunities as possible for you to become a successful person.  It’s all about helping you become the successful person you aspire to be.   Seguro!

1.  Read page 10 in your “The Development of the American Brand” textbook.  If you just joined our class today and don’t have a soft cover, personalized textbook yet, click on the textbook link entitled “The Brand Book” shown to the right of this post on the web site landing page.  Go to page 10 (Glossary of Key Terms).  Explain in a well written paragraph how the lessons on page 10 apply to this picture below I shared with you in class today.  Your explanation must be written with well constructed sentences, good grammar and perfect spelling.

2.  Read the profile of Cesar Chavez in your textbook beginning on page 65 and ending on page 71.  If you had the opportunity to go back in time to have dinner with Mr Chavez, what question would you ask him?   (Your question must be written with  good grammar and perfect spelling.)  Thank you.

3. Name a fictional character (super hero, monster, cartoon character, etc) you would love to have as a friend.   Then, tell me why you think this character would be a good friend for you.   Again, write well constructed sentences with good grammar and perfect spelling.
