Homework - p. 38 - Complete the reflection questions below based on what we have read so far in I Am Malala and the video "Making of Malala" which is linked above.

Answer the questions below on page 38 of your notebook:

1) Answer in one paragraph (at least 5+ sentences): Throughout the book I Am Malala, the protagonist Malala Yousafzai faces incredible danger and risk in speaking out against the Taliban. Do you think it's right for a 12 year-old girl to be so public about the fight for girls' education in what amounted to a war zone? Why or why not?

2) Answer in one paragraph (at least 5+ sentences): When Malala begins to speak out against the Taliban, she is the same age as many 7th graders here at BLA. Do you think that you would have the same courage as Malala to speak out against the Taliban? Why or why not?

Homework - p. 35 - Watch the clip from The Daily Show interview with Malala Yousafzai on the class website. After watching the video, answer the reflection questions below on page 35 of your notebook:

1) According to the interview, where did Malala's love for education come from?

2) Starting in 2007, according to Malala, how many schools have the Taliban bombed in the Swat Valley in Pakistan?

3) What does Malala say was the inspiration for her courage in speaking out against the Taliban?

4) In the interview, Jon Stewart sarcastically jokes that, "Your [Malala's] love of education reminds him so much of my kids...not so much." Do you think children in the United States appreciate education as much as Malala and other girls in Pakistan do? Why or why not?

5) Malala says, "In my opinion, the solution that would work to fight all these wars and all these problems that people are facing is only education." Do you agree with her? Why or why not?
