Let’s give them an award!

November 12, 2010

This is the idea for your next assignment. Write a short essay and tell us why the person you propose should win an award for being exceptional. You don’t need to necessarily do the person you told us about after your planning in class. If you prefer to write about someone else, do feel free to do so.

Rather than posting a comment with your article here, send it to me by email first so that I can share the document with the class and they all try to edit your mistakes once I have highlighted them. Don’t worry, just send me an email and we’ll explain the rest in class.

The deadlines we have agreed are:

Mondays and Wednesdays group: 24th November

Tuesdays and Thursdays group: 25th November

Enjoy your writing!

    I want to share with you a video that one friend of mine send me a few years ago (perhaps you haven’t known it yet). It’s a wonderful story about an australian father and his son, it´s about the love between them, it´s about force and sacrifice… Yes, we CAN
    I have to tell you that I always cry. Don’t worry, let it go out!!

    First this one

    I found an interesting video of a person that I admire, Steve Jobs CEO of Apple and Pixar.
    This video is a commencement speech in Stanford.
    I hope you enjoy it.
