      Website Purpose and Publisher

          My name is Anisha P. This website is my research project. I chose to research about Steve Jobs because my whole family has his products and they enjoy using it. This website was created to inform people about Steve Jobs' life and how his company formed to sell useful products that people continue to use.

               Description Paragraph

                             Early Life

           Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in San Francisco, California. As an infant, Steve Jobs was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs. He grew up in Mountain View and Los Altos. His biological parents are Abdulfattah Jandali and Joanne Schieble. His biological sister is an American novelist named Mona Simpson. Steve was a very turbulent kid. In addition to his turbulence, his teacher had to bribe him to learn. Steve Jobs began to attend a computer club that his friend, Wozniak led. Wozniak’s goal was to create electronic gadgets. For example, he teamed up with Steve Jobs to accomplish their goal of making electronic gadgets. Steve Jobs attended Reed College but dropped out to study philosophy and counterculture.

             Cause and Effect  Paragraph     
                       Early Life: Education

                      Steve didn't want to learn. Due to his disability to learn, he was bribed by his fourth grade teacher with money and candy. Since he was being bribed with money and candy, he learned so quickly that he skipped 5th grade and began middle school at Crittenden Middle School, which was in a poor area. Steve was bullied at school. Because of his bullying situation, he told his parents that if he didn't switch to another school, he would completely stop going to school. As a result, his family moved to Los Altos so Steve could attend Cupertino Junior High.
