FC: World Events: What is going on in our world today

1: Welcome to my Mixbook technology curriculum project! The following pages are examples of work that students might create and publish following the directions of my Classification lesson plan found at the end of this Mixbook. Technology is a powerful motivator for students. They can create projects that are aesthetically pleasing and that can be published to share with other students, family, and friends. In addition to being viewed on the Web, a Mixbook creation can be printed out as a hard copy book that can be housed in the classroom, presented to the school library, or purchased by parents and guardians as a keepsake of their student's work. -Lindsay Hughes

2: Table of Contents: Democrats= Obama's Jobs bill: page 3&4 World map: page 5 Police Find human remains in Susan Powell search: page 6&7 U.S Map: page 8 Does Tookie Deserve to Die?: page 9&10 State Prison: page 11

3: Some Democrats Balking at Obama's jobs bill: In this Article president Obama anticipated republican resistance to his job fairs, but he is now meeting increasing push-back from his own party. Republicans have focused their attack on the tax increases that would help pay for the spending components. Some are unhappy about the specific types of companies particularly the oil industries that would lose tax benefits.

4: This is very important current event as a significant global event, because with Obama being the president he doesn't just affect the United States, but in ways he can affect the rest of the world. I think that this new job bill that Obama is trying to put on everyone, is going to make a big problem for everyone.

5: World Map highlighting America

6: Police Find human remains in Susan Powell search: Police searching the Utah Desert in connection with the 2009 disappearance of Susan Cox Powell found human remains Wednesday near Topaz Mountain. There is no confirmation yet as to whether the remains are of Powell, but they were found in an area that authorities said is popular with rock hounds and where her husband, Josh Powell, liked to camp.

7: This current event is a significant global because this could mean danger to not just us but to everyone. I think that this is and important thing that people should know about, especially since they do not know for sure if these are the remains of Susan cox Powell, and if they are, then the family of Susan will be able to get comfort in knowing where there daughter.

9: Does Tookie Deserve to Die? Supporters of Stanley "Tookie" Williams, who is a ex-gangbanger and convicted murder, say that he has changed his life around. Were the families of his victims want him executed as scheduled. For the past 24 years, Williams has languished on Death row in California's San Quentin state prison, but now he has run out of appeals and unless Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger grants him clemency, Williams will be executed December 13. Since being arrested and convicted for four brutal murders, that we5re committed in a 13-day span , in 1979, Williams, 51, has steadfastly maintained his innocence.

10: This event is a significant global event, because it proves, how sometimes even the worst of people, people who have murdered people and have done worse, and have been convicted of the crime, and yet still wont say he is responsible, can move the people. I believe Williams should die, hes been convicted of killing four people in a 13-day time span, evidence showed that he did it, and he was convicted fairly by his peers, they found him guilty, by the evidence that was shown them, so it doesn't really matter what the people say and believe, yes people do change, but if he had really changed, would he have continued his innocence this whole time? So i believe he hasn't changed and he needs to be executed.

11: California San Quentin State Prison

13: "Occupy Wall Street" The "Occupy Wall Street", demonstrations started last month in New York, and have since spread across the country, born out of anger toward the financial community's success during a time of prolonged economic hardship. Liberals are optimistic that those protests will translate into the kind of lasting political movement achieved over the last two years by the tea party, which helped reshaped th e trajectory of American politics.

14: This current Event is a significant global event because, its shows us the different things that are going on in the world. Such as the demonstrations in New York. I have no real opinion to this.
