“My 365” December 8, 2010

December 8, 2010

So I sat there, and I thought. I brainstormed. I read the LA Times. I looked over NBC.com. I checked in the California English Language Arts Content Standards.
–Then I went to Facebook. — and finally I knew.

This week’s writing assignment.

— Write a one paragraph ‘essay’ on the following topic:
If you were given one million dollars and told to spend it on charities, which charity/charities would you choose, and why?

–Write a 5 paragraph essay on the following topic:
If you were given one million dollars and told to spend it on charity, which charity/charities would you choose? The stipulation: you must base your choices on your strongest moral character traits. (Note: Moral Character Traits are different from personality traits.)
–this will involve some thought, as you must first decide which are your strengths. Once you have determined that, then you may choose your charity.
— do not forget to explain the reasons for your choices, based on your character traits.

The students know at least 9 main character traits, plus they may consider any additional ones they can think of. They were provided a list of the top 200 charities in America, published by Forbes Magazine.

The assignment(s) were based on skill level. I am very interested to see what they come up with.

  1. I like it- an assignment that also challenges the student to think about the ‘big picture’. I also like the photo. It’s a solid study of hands and java. 🙂
