Homework - p. 16 - 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 16 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?
