Homework - p. 22 - 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.

After watching the video "Making of Malala," answer the questions below on page 22 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?
