Job searching questions is when we talk to people about working. We ask questions like "what is the dress code?", "what are the shift times?" and "do you hire people with disabilities?"
We did 2 different videos one was called, "I can say no" and the other was called, "It's good to be different". We made posters for the videos and we explained what each poster was about.
"I can say no" is about self-advocacy.
For the video, "It's good to be different" we show that being different is okay because it is unique and it makes the world different because if it was the same it would be boring.
And that is what our 2 videos are about self-advocacy and diversity. -Alejandra
We made some posters about different kinds of sayings about beliefs, diversity, culture, self-advocacy, saying "no" and speaking out for yourself. We showed the other classes our videos. We appreciate our videos. -Darrien

Diversity means that everyone is different unique and beautiful you should always treat people equally because they might look different and they speak a different language but you should not treat them different you should treat them the same because you do not know what there situation is and you do not know what they are going threw so be nice and treat every one the same you would treat any one else and be respectful. -Alejandra
Diversity means that we live in a universe with different cultures. people judge each other about their life and where they come from and sometimes where they are born.
I like who I am. Give people Respect. It's good to be different. Go out there and be yourself- Darrien
