QUESTION OF THE DAY
10pts daily, due by the end of class.
Every day, class will start with a "Question of the Day". You should do your best to write a complete response (25 word minimum) to the question and EMAIL it to me. If you aren't sure about what to write, please ask! No credit will be given for late QODs, unless you were absent that day.
Monday, April 29: High school is just about over and college isn’t too far away. What are you looking forward to most in college? What makes you the most nervous?
Tuesday, April 30: Why aren’t all currencies worth the same? What are some of the factors that impact the value of a country’s money?
Wednesday, May 1: What is the difference between industrialized countries, developing countries, and less-developed countries? Give an example of each.

Friday, May 3: What are some of the challenges with making international payments in business?
Monday. May 6: Think back over the past 4 years … what are your best and worst memories from Northwest?
Tuesday, May 7: What advice would you give the incoming FS sophomores? (things you wish you’d known about junior and senior years)
Wednesday, May 8: How have your career plans changed from when you started high school until today?
Thursday, May 9: It’s time for your final QOD! You’ve done about 350 of these questions (well, most of you did) and I’m sure you won’t miss these too much. But what part of FS will you miss?
