In Class - We will take a break from our discussion of health care and have more of a "feel good" class experience. We will be in the library taking a look at the following web site:http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/cnn.heroes/
From here, you will take a look at some extraordinary human beings that have gone above and beyond what is expected and have passionately given back to the world. Your task is to take a look at the categories provided on this website (either 2008 or 2009):
DEFENDING THE PLANET
PROTECTING THE POWERLESS
The Assignment: Select one person from each of these categories and read their stories about what they have done to make a significant change and impact in our world. Write down their name, what they did, and a short reaction about this person or the impact they have made. Every entry should be at least 6-8 sentences long. In the end, I am looking for a well-written response for each of these categories. Look through several people in each of the categories and find a person that really hits home and has an impact on you.
Homework - Write ups from this website are due on Monday. Question of the Week needs to be posted by 11:59 tonight for full credit. Stay current on your current events.
