Understanding Of Education
Please write a 2 to 3 page paper, double spaced, answering the following questions: 1. The focus of Malalas message is that an education is worth dying for; what is Malalas perspective of education? How is that perspective the same or different from how we, in America, view education? What might Malala think about our understanding of education? Is her only goal to get a job? 2. All throughout the telling of her story, Malala clearly identifies with her homeland: so I was born a proud daughter of Pakistan, though like all Swatis I thought of myself first as Swati and then Pashtun, before Pakistani. In what ways does identifying ourselves with our homeland open up opportunities? In what ways can it limit us? 3. Malala demonstrates an overwhelming sense of courage in the face of adversity. Discuss how Malala reacts to challenges she faces, as well as the challenges to Swat and Pakistan. How do her peers react? What gives them strength? 4. Malala and her father have a very unique and close relationship. Think of someone in your life how has become a mentor. How did they inspire you?
