I have this project for english about the PTA Reflections. Ok you see we have to write a 5 paragraph essay in which I discuss what you believe diversity means. Be sure yo have a topic sentence for each new paragraph, and provide supporting details. Please be creative and come up with a catchy title that you put into quotation marks. Sorry about that I was explaing it to you what do I have to do (copyed for assignment sheet my teacher gave me). This assignment is due on monday (so I have today tomorrow since there is no school and the weekend.

Here is my notes when I gathered information.

. Culture
. what good or bad about it
- people don't understand (ppl languages)
- ESL
- Diversity - the condition of being diffent (got it from teacher)
- school and community
- languages
- spanish and french classes (@ skool)
- music
- dances/clothes


My teacher said that our essay is beign graded as a project and that if you want to you can hand it in to the Reflection program.

Is there anything alse I can add ti my notes so that way I can use that to write my essay I know I need more detials but if you teacher want to your decicion can give me info. on each topic I wrote there about diversity to help me or my essay that YOUR CHOSE.


Thank You!!!!

    Remember, your assignment is to write about what diversity means to YOU.

    Have you had any friends with different backgrounds? Have you ever been interested in the customs and languages of other people?

    When my children were growing up, we lived in a community that was almost entirely white Protestant. Yet my daughter Sandy's best friends in elementary school were and African-American girl and a Jewish girl. She learned about discrimination from her black friend. She celebrated her Jewish friend's Bat Mitzvah with her.

    Have you had similar experiences?

    Some of these topics are broad. Because it is to be a 5-paragraph essay, the first paragraph will probably contain your thesis statement, or what you wish to proove, the last will be your conclusion, so you might want to focus on 3 main things.

    Speaking of diversity, try some of these:

    You will have lots of research to do and planning/organizing before you even begin writing. It's good to do a rough draft, go away and then come back to add, delete, etc. If you can leave one day away from it before you proofread for spelling, grammar, word choice, etc., so much the better.

    Be sure to post your final essay with enough time to have it proofread. Good luck and let us know anything else you might need.
