Homework - p. 29 - Complete the reflection questions below based on what we have read so far in I Am Malala. 

You may choose to watch the video, but it is OPTIONAL because it contains GRAPHIC material - students that choose to watch the video should SKIP the graphic section by pausing at 6:00 and resuming the video at 6:30.

Answer the questions below on page 29 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?
