KLQ Brainstorming Sheet
Answer this question before you read. K: What do I know? Use an "anchor" book to answer the following question about your topic. You are not taking notes. You need to write down “big” ideas you learn such as “I learned the size of the Titanic.” or “I learned about the discover of it.” The response "I don't know" is not an acceptable answer.
L: What did I learn?
As you read, write down any questions about your topic that pop into your head. Q: What questions do I have? *

By: Faith Way back when, there were no computers, no Internet, no Google. Yeah, we’re all trying to forget those times. Throughout the 21st century, Google has been very successful, developed new applications and technology, and now has a very good reputation for being a great place to work. I hope you enjoy your tour of Google’s head. Well, headquarters anyway. When Larry Page and Sergey Brin came up with Google, I bet it was no more than a dream to take over the search engine industry. But, in 2007, that’s exactly what Google did. Google achieved the great honor of being the most used search engine on the web. As Larry Page said it, “The perfect search engine would understand exactly what you mean and give you exactly what you want.” But, how does Google do it? Well, it started with a ton of borrowed money and free searches. It’s definitely nice to be able to just say “Google it” when someone asks you to spell super-kala-fraga-listic-expi-ala-docious (Which, by the way, is spelled wrong here. You’ll have to Google how it’s spelled!), or why George Bush named his son George W, and not have to pay to search for it. How does Google ofter free searches? It’s through something called AdWords. AdWords is a program that connects advertisements that directly relate to your Google search. As a result, advertisers pay Google millions, advertisers make millions from our business, Google makes millions, we do millions of searches for free, and millions of people are happy. :) Google is one of the BEST places to work. It’s definitely succeeded in changing the work world. Google believes you can be “serious without a suit,” “work should be challenging, and that challenge should be fun,” and “do no evil and change the world for the better.” These are some of Google’s many mission statements. The zen-like workspace is open, colorful, and fun. “Real fun?” you ask. Chess. They have chess set up. So, yes, real fun. Google somehow managed to make it to the top of Fortune Magazine’s “Top 100 Places to work” list. Go Google!
“What's your email?" "Go Google it" "Where do you live?" "Go Google it" "Do you eat eggplant?" "Go Google it" Google has the answer to almost anything, and can do a whole lot. But, does Google come up with a result for everything, though? No. Have you ever Googled “]”? “Your search - ] - did not match any documents.” While nothing can do everything, Google sure does come close. From Alerts to Web Search Features, Google has a ton of apps. They even have they’re own phone technology! Have you ever heard of Android? Well, we can all thank Google for that. And YouTube? Run by Google. They’re even working on a new TV that can hook you up to the full Internet, and it will be the first of its kind. Gmail, News, Sketch-Up, Videos, Images, um, you get the picture. Or, more, the big picture. Sergey Brin says, “Google actually relies on our users to help with our marketing. We have a very high percentage of our users who often tell others about our search engine.” In English (and not marketing talk), random people of the world, keep talking! Over all, I think Google has done pretty well. I mean, if over 4,000,000,000 (four billion) web pages and at least that many users falls into the pretty good category. Google has been really successful, is changing the way people work (and think of work), and has a ton of apps. All the facts in this paper are true... Just GOOGLE It!!!!
