Calling for Opinions and Responses

This quote by Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries has surfaced again. Please read the quote and then give your opinion. Make sure to include your reasons when you write your opinion.

Here is the quote:

"In every school there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids," he says. "Candidly, we go after the cool kids. We go after the attractive all-American kid with a great attitude and a lot of friends. A lot of people don't belong (in out clothes), and they can't belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely."

Your deadline is Monday, May 20, 2013 11:59 p.m.

P.S. In case you are wondering what Abercrombie & Fitch is, it is a clothing store at the mall.

What is social justice?

You could be writing an essay that deals with social justice. Where would you start? Do you even know what social  justice means?
Here is your opportunity to let the others in the class know your definition of social justice.
Maybe you will find the definition in a dictionary. Maybe you will definite it in your own words. Maybe one of you will give some examples of social justice that we can share with the rest of the class.

Your comments are due on Sunday, May 12, 2013 by 11:59 pm. This assignment will go towards your writing class grade.

Which character is most like you?

As we say goodbye to Romeo and Juliet and their families, think about yourself in the play: which character is the most like you? Or, if there is not a character that resembles you, create a character for yourself. Make sure that you explain which family you are part of, who are you most close related to, who are your friends, and most importantly: what kind of character you are?
If you were in the play, would you have changed the course of the events? How? Why? What would have been the end result?
