(11-9-2011) I completed all my homework that I was missing so I could have a better grade in my English class. The items I finished were my English assignments: vocabulary words (looking up their definition) and reading. Also I read chapter 5 in my Science book which was about cell membranes. I answered six questions about cell membranes. Mr. Inzunza helped me with all the assignments by checking my answers and then directing me to the places where I would find the answers in the reading.

(Student Success Plan) When I grow up I want go to college, have a job, and more. I want to go to UCLA for my bachelor’s degree. To get into college I would have to graduate from High School first. Then after I finish college I want to have a job as a veterinarian to help poor animals that need to be loved and cared for. To be a veterinarian I would have to be prepared and go to graduate school in Veterinary Medicine. The veterinary school I want to go to is Western University. There they teach you a lot of stuff, they teach you veterinarian medicine as well as how to run a successful practice. Then when I have a lot of money I can move out of my parent’s house and buy my own car. The type of car I want is a charger 2015 if they make one. My future would be perfect if I don’t mess up.

Today I worked on my Language Arts homework. My homework was to read a book. The assigned book I read was "Tornado" by Betsy Byars. It was about a boy named Pete who found a dog. Pete found the dog after a big tornado had hit. The dog was big and black. Pete named him Tornado. Tornado became Petes pet. Pete took care of him. What's sad is that Tornado belonged to another family and not to Pete.

The northern region has tall mountains and deep canyons like the Grand Canyon. Also this region is very hot in the day and very cold at night.

Nine Bands of Cahuilla Indians: Agua Caliente, Augustine, Cabazon, Cahuilla, Los Coyotes,
Morongo, Ramona, Santa Rosa, Torres Martinez

Richard Milanovich:
The person I am writing about is named Richard Milanovich. Richard died of cancer on March
the 11th of 2012. He had been fighting cancer for two years. He was Chairman to the Agua
Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians for almost 30 years. He will always motivate people, and will
always be remembered for his impact. He was a fierce Tribal leader and served as an advocate
for HIV prevention.

California Reads Book List:
After reviewing the list I would like to read the book "A Paradise built in Hell" because it seems
both inspiring and interesting to me. Maybe this will be my favorite book...

Promotes American Indian Languages in public schools in the state of Colorado.

Suzanne Williams is Comanche Indian and she is a law maker. She is behind Senate Bill 57.
She wants to teach and promote American Indian languages in all public schools in the state
of Colorado so that Natives wont lose their identity. I think that is a good idea. Some Natives don't
know their own languages. If their were more educational opportunities like this I would be very
proud of being Native.

After reviewing the books on the California Reads Book List I've decided I would like to read
"Lost City Radio" because it is interesting. It takes us to a fictional Latin American Country much
like the author's home country of Peru. The book takes place 10 years after a dirty war.
