NPR Podcast-Who had the first job?

People have always worked. But the thing we think of today as a job — the thing you apply for instead of being born into, the thing you go to in the morning and leave at night — is actually a recent invention. The modern job can act as a buffer to protect workers from the daily ups and downs of businesses. But the job as we know it may be going away.
On today's show, we go in search of the very first modern job.
Receive a free stamp if you listen to this podcast and post in comments your thoughts (2-3 sentences) on the First Modern Job.

Revolutions MEMES-Due 2/15

Find a relevant picture that is about any of the REVOLUTIONS and CREATE A MEME with it.  Be sure the meme is SCHOOL APPROPRIATE.  The meme also needs to include a small (in size) reference to Coach Roberts to verify that you created it rather than stole it from the internet.

Post your completed MEME in COMMENTS BELOW.  Be sure to put your name and class period in comments with your MEME.  This will be a completion grade for the 5th 6-Weeks.  Due by Sunday 2/15.
